The complete spectral characterization of ultrashort pulses is demonstrated with a new diagnostic called Spectral Interferometry Resolved in Time Extra Dimensional. This method, based on spectral shearing interferometry, is self-referenced and self-calibrated. It yields directly to an interferogram pattern displaying an intuitive representation of the derivative of the spectral phase. No iterative algorithm is needed for phase measurement making this method suitable for real time and easy characterization. This technique is highlighted by the spectral phase characterization of pulses out of a folded nondispersive line and the pulse shape is compared with a trace recorded with an intensity autocorrelator.

    We describe optical interferometry with 100 fs time resolution and a spatial resolution of approximately one micrometer. Using a pump-probe scheme and a 2D-Fourier transformation algorithm, we are able to retrieve from the interferograms very small changes in the phase and the amplitude of the...

    In time reversal acoustics (TRA), a signal is recorded by an array of transducers, time reversed, and then retransmitted into the configuration. The retransmitted signal propagates back through the same medium and retrofocuses on the source that generated the signal. If the transducer array is a...
