    The article explains the use of the Zang-fu Model of pulses. The upper part of the position is the Fu or hollow organ and the lower half is the Zang or solid organ. The use of Front and Back may be slightly different than the classics. Typically Front and Back are interpreted to mean upper and...

    We perform the in situ characterization, by second-order optical autocorrelation, of femtosecond pulses transmitted by near-field optical probes. We demonstrate that transmission through hollow pyramid probes with diameter down to 65 nm has negligible effects on the duration of pulses as short...
