Abstract
A unique method for determining the amplitude and phase of ultrashort optical pulses is described. The method involves differential detection of adjacent spectral components of the pulse with an ultrafast photodiode. This technique requires no optical nonlinearities, and is therefore ideal for detection of weak pulses.
