Abstract

This paper presents an experimental technique for measurement of the contrast ratio of ultrashort UV pulses. As a multiple-shot device based on the scheme of difference frequency generation this is, to our knowledge, the only cross correlator in the UV so far, which offers a dynamic range of 107 and operates with input pulse energies as low as 5 μJ. By changing the cross correlator into single-shot mode, the temporal shape of the UV pulse can be measured.
