    A new method for the self-referencing measurement of the amplitude-phase shape of an ultrashort pulse is proposed. The method uses a two-frequency characteristic of the pulse, which is defined as S( F1) S( F2), where F is the frequency, S( F) is the complex Fourier spectrum of the pulse, and F1...
