Abstract
In general the spatial and temporal profiles of ultrashort light pulses suffer considerable distortions upon propagating through optical devices. This may lead to serious limitations of the spatial and temporal resolution. The distortions can be reduced by using input pulses with appropriate prechirp and optical devices corrected for chromatic and spatial aberrations at the center frequency of the light pulses. The spatial (temporal) resolution can be enhanced by selecting narrow temporal (spatial) parts of the light pulses in the detection process.
