Amplitude and Phase Characterization of Ultrashort Laser Pulses

Amplitude and Phase Characterization of Ultrashort Laser Pulses

This application kit addresses a means for monitoring the spectral profile of a laser pulse as a function of time. This technique is known as frequency-resolved optical gating (FROG) which is a general technique that can be employed in a variety of experimental geometries. The focus of this kit is on two geometries: self-diffraction (SD FROG) for amplified systems and second harmonic (SHG FROG) for oscillators.
