Title: Spatio-spectral characterization of broadband fields using multispectral imaging

Abstract

Spatiotemporal coupling in the field of ultrashort optical pulses is a technical enabler for applications but can result in detrimental effects such as increased on-target pulse duration and decreased intensity. Spectrally resolved spatial-phase measurements of a broadband field are demonstrated using a custom multispectral camera combined with two different wavefront sensors: a multilateral spatial shearing interferometer based on an amplitude checkerboard mask and an apodized imaged Hartmann sensor. Here, the spatially and spectrally resolved phase is processed to quantify the commonly occurring pulse-front tilt and radial group delay, which are experimentally found to be in good agreement with models.
