Title: Method and apparatus for measuring the intensity and phase of one or more ultrashort light pulses and for measuring optical properties of materials

Abstract

The intensity and phase of one or more ultrashort light pulses are obtained using a non-linear optical medium. Information derived from the light pulses is also used to measure optical properties of materials. Various retrieval techniques are employed. Both "instantaneously" and "non-instantaneously" responding optical mediums may be used.
