We present a method using total-internal reflection for measuring small index-of- refraction changes (Δn=1×10−5). The technique overcomes requirements of diffraction-limited laser performance, is auto-calibrating, and paves the way for sensitive single-shot ultrafast measurements of material dynamics.
