Observation of Optical Pulse and Material Dynamics on the Femtosecond Time-Scale

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The widespread availability of lasers that generate pulses on the femtosecond scale has opened new realms of investigation in the basic and applied sciences, rendering available excitations delivering intensities well in excess of 10{sup 21} W/cm{sup 2}, and furnishing probes capable of resolving molecular relaxation timescales. As a consequence and a necessity, sophisticated techniques to examine the pulse behavior on the femtosecond scale have been developed and are of crucial importance to gain insight on the behavior of physical systems. These techniques will be discussed with specific application to guided pulse propagation and ionization dynamics of noble gases.
