    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...

    We recently setup a high energy, tunable, injection seeded Ti:Sapphire laser source whose implementation was reported in [Rev. Sci. Instrum. 78, 033102 (2007)]. The analysis of the spectral linewidth has demonstrated that the pulses were time Fourier-transform limited. The present paper reports...
