1 June 2006 Autocorrelator designs for nonlinear optical microscopy
Author Affiliations +
Nonlinear optical microscopy is a relatively new and rapidly growing field of optical engineering, where Ti:sapphire ultrafast laser sources and technologies are finding a wide application. Diagnostic techniques addressed to this kind of application have been widely developed in the last few years. Research efforts have been focused on the evaluation and eventual correction of laser pulse duration widening due to group velocity dispersion of microscope optics, and devices have been specially designed to perform second-order autocorrelation measurements at the objective focal plane. In the present work, innovative, simple setups and procedures are reported that make the best use of all the facilities and characteristics of the microscope itself, so that only a few optical components are needed to temporal characterize the laser pulse at the specimen plane.
