Abstract

Standard silicon photodiodes and CCD cameras are convenient and inexpensive alternatives to cryogenically cooled diodes or arrays for autocorrelation and imaging of ultrafast infrared (IR) laser pulses in the wavelength range 3-11 υ. The response of these Si devices to IR pulses of duration ~ 100fs is proportional to E^n, where E is the pulse energy and n is approximately the Si electronic bandgap divided by the photon energy.
