Temporal contrast degradation at the focus of ultrashort pulses from high-frequency spectral phase noise

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Expressions are derived for the low-intensity temporal pedestal produced by optical surface roughness within stretchers and compressors. Phase noise in the near field of a spectrally dispersed beam produces space–time coupling in the focal plane.
