Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Nonlinear optical phenomena as noncollinear second harmonic and sum frequency generation and also degenerate four-wave mixing can be used to obtain a one-to-one mapping of the temporal intensity distribution function of a short laser pulse on the transversal, spatial intensity distribution of an output beam. Methods for high contrast single shot measurements in the femtosecond to subnanosecond region are suggested using tilting of the wave front and/or short sampling pulses.
