Short optical pulses have been involved in a number of areas of science and technology. It is now possible to generate optical pulses of less than 10 fs duration corresponding to only a few optical cycles. One of the most important applications of these short optical pulses is in electronics, where, in conjunction with the electro-optic effect, electrical waveforms now can be characterized with a few hundred femtosecond resolution - corresponding to 1 THz in bandwidth. This technique makes possible the characterization in situ of high-speed optoelectronic and electronic devices as well as circuits operating in the picosecond time scale or 100 GHz frequency domain.
