Characterization of ultrafast interactions with materials through the direct measurement of the optical phase

Published

Author(s)

Tracy S. Clement, G Rodriguez, W M. Wood, A J. Taylor

Abstract

The change in phase of ultrashot optical pulses induced by traveling through nonlinear media is used to determine the nonlinear index of refraction and to study the dynamics of femtosecond optical-field-ionization of noble gases.
