Abstract
In this paper, an interferometric autocorrelator based on two-photon-absorption (TPA) detector is demonstrated. It can be used in the measurement of ultrashort pulse at 1.55 um wavelength region. From the second order autocorrelation trace of optical field, we can infer the pulse width. Accompanied with a linear detector, we can fully characterize the optical pulse, including intensity and phase profiles. A novel phase retrieval algorithm is proposed. It is a combination of an iterative loop and an evolution process. Simulation results show that our algorithm converges stably and can give a better approximation of the optical field than traditional algorithm.
