Abstract
In this discussion, we report two recent advances in femtosecond optical technology. Firstly, the generation and measurement of optical pulses as short as 30 fs is described. The pulses are produced using self-phase modulation of the 90 fs laser pulse in a short 15 cm optical fiber followed by a grating compressor. Finally, we report the operation of an optically synchronized streak camera which operates at 10 Hz repetition rate and has a system jitter of less than one picosecond. Synch-ronization is achieved with a Fe:InP photoconductive switch which allows for room temperature dc biasing.
