We discuss the mid-infrared optical response of a charge and spin-ordered nickelate in the ultrafast time domain. A strong photo-induced modulation of the optical reflectivity is observed on the sub-picosecond timescale, indicating the transient filling and recovery of the pseudogap in the mid-infrared charge transport. A variational Kramers-Kronig analysis of equilibrium reflectivity data is extended to time-resolved experiments, allowing us to extract the optical conductivity despite a comparatively limited frequency range of tunable femtosecond parametric sources. The fast dynamics of the spectral weight transfer supports an electronic origin of the mid-infrared pseudogap in nickelates.
