Near-field scanning can achieve nanoscale resolution while ultrashort pulse diagnostic tools can characterize femtosecond pulses. Yet currently it is still challenging to nonperturbatively characterize the near field of an ultrashort optical pulse with nanofemtoscale spatiotemporal resolution. To address this challenge, we propose to develop a nonlinear nanoprobe composed of a silica fiber taper, a nanowire, and nonlinear fluorescent spheres. Using such a nanoprobe, we also report proof-of-principle characterization of femtosecond optical pulse through interferometric autocorrelation measurement.

    This study determines if the U-shaped pattern that Boudoukh, Richardson, and Whitelaw (1994) find in weekly return autocorrelations exists for weekly return cross-autocorrelations. Using size-sorted and volume-sorted portfolios of equity returns from 1963-2000, we find that the U-shaped pattern...

    Unimodular waveforms x are constructed on the integers with the property that the autocorrelation of x is one at the origin and zero elsewhere. There are three different constructions: exponentials of the form $e^{2 \pi i n^\alpha \theta},$ sequences taken from roots of unity, and sequences...
