An interferometric method is presented to characterize the most important parameters of beams from large aperture femtosecond excimer laser systems. With the use of a special interferometer the shape of both the pulse and the phase fronts can simultaneously be studied. With minor changes, conventional autocorrelation measurements can also be performed.
