Such pulses have a broadband optical spectrum , and can be created by mode-locked oscillators. They are commonly referred to as ultrafast events.
Amplification of ultrashort pulses almost always requires the technique of chirped pulse amplification , in order to avoid damage to the gain medium of the amplifier.
They are characterized by a high peak intensity or more correctly, irradiance that usually leads to nonlinear interactions in various materials, including air. These processes are studied in the field of nonlinear optics. In the specialized literature, "ultrashort" refers to the femtosecond fs and picosecond ps range, although such pulses no longer hold the record for the shortest pulses artificially generated.
Indeed, x-ray pulses with durations on the attosecond time scale have been reported. Zewail , for the use of ultrashort pulses to observe chemical reactions at the timescales on which they occur, opening up the field of femtochemistry. There is no standard definition of ultrashort pulse. Usually the attribute 'ultrashort' applies to pulses with a temporal duration of a few tens of femtoseconds, but in a larger sense any pulse which lasts less than a few picoseconds can be considered ultrashort.
The distinction between "Ultrashort" and "Ultrafast" is necessary as the speed at which the pulse propagates is a function of the index of refraction of the medium through which it travels, whereas "Ultrashort" refers to the temporal width of the pulse wavepacket. A common example is a chirped Gaussian pulse, a wave whose field amplitude follows a Gaussian envelope and whose instantaneous phase has a frequency sweep. To facilitate calculations, a complex field E t is defined.
Formally, it is defined as the analytic signal corresponding to the real field. The expression of the complex electric field in the frequency domain is obtained from the Fourier transform of E t :. Just as in the time domain, an intensity and a phase function can be defined in the frequency domain:.
Such a chirp may be acquired as a pulse propagates through materials like glass and is due to their dispersion. It results in a temporal broadening of the pulse. As stated by the uncertainty principle , their product sometimes called the time-bandwidth product has a lower bound. This minimum value depends on the definition used for the duration and on the shape of the pulse. For a given spectrum, the minimum time-bandwidth product, and therefore the shortest pulse, is obtained by a transform-limited pulse, i.
High values of the time-bandwidth product, on the other hand, indicate a more complex pulse. Although optical devices also used for continuous light, like beam expanders and spatial filters, may be used for ultrashort pulses, several optical devices have been specifically designed for ultrashort pulses. One of them is the pulse compressor ,  a device that can be used to control the spectral phase of ultrashort pulses.
It is composed of a sequence of prisms, or gratings. A pulse shaper can be used to make more complicated alterations on both the phase and the amplitude of ultrashort pulses.
To accurately control the pulse, a full characterization of the pulse spectral phase is a must in order to get certain pulse spectral phase such as transform-limited.
Then, a spatial light modulator can be used in the 4f plane to control the pulse. Through the phase scan of the spatial light modulator, MIIPS can not only characterize but also manipulate the ultrashort pulse to get the needed pulse shape at target spot such as transform-limited pulse for optimized peak power, and other specific pulse shapes.
If the pulse shaper is fully calibrated, this technique allows controlling the spectral phase of ultrashort pulses using a simple optical setup with no moving parts. Intensity autocorrelation gives the pulse width when a particular pulse shape is assumed.
Spectral interferometry SI is a linear technique that can be used when a pre-characterized reference pulse is available. It gives the intensity and phase. The algorithm that extracts the intensity and phase from the SI signal is direct. Spectral phase interferometry for direct electric-field reconstruction SPIDER is a nonlinear self-referencing technique based on spectral shearing interferometry. The method is similar to SI, except that the reference pulse is a spectrally shifted replica of itself, allowing one to obtain the spectral intensity and phase of the probe pulse via a direct FFT filtering routine similar to SI, but which requires integration of the phase extracted from the interferogram to obtain the probe pulse phase.
Frequency-resolved optical gating FROG is a nonlinear technique that yields the intensity and phase of a pulse. It is a spectrally resolved autocorrelation. The algorithm that extracts the intensity and phase from a FROG trace is iterative. Grenouille is French for " frog ".
Chirp scan is a technique similar to MIIPS which measures the spectral phase of a pulse by applying a ramp of quadratic spectral phases and measuring second harmonic spectra. With respect to MIIPS, which requires many iterations to measure the spectral phase, only two chirp scans are needed to retrieve both the amplitude and the phase of the pulse. Multiphoton intrapulse interference phase scan MIIPS is a method to characterize and manipulate the ultrashort pulse. We consider the propagation for the SVEA of the electric field in a homogeneous dispersive nonisotropic medium.
Oddly enough, because of previously incomplete expansions, this rotation of the pulse was not realized until the late s but it has been experimentally confirmed. The first and second terms are responsible for the curvature of the propagating front of the pulse. So far, the treatment herein is linear, but nonlinear dispersive terms are ubiquitous to nature. Despite being rather common, the SVEA is not required to formulate a simple wave equation describing the propagation of optical pulses.
In fact, as shown in,  even a very general form of the electromagnetic second order wave equation can be factorized into directional components, providing access to a single first order wave equation for the field itself, rather than an envelope. This requires only an assumption that the field evolution is slow on the scale of a wavelength, and does not restrict the bandwidth of the pulse at all—as demonstrated vividly by.
High energy ultrashort pulses can be generated through high harmonic generation in a nonlinear medium. A high intensity ultrashort pulse will generate an array of harmonics in the medium; a particular harmonic of interest is then selected with a monochromator.
This technique has been used to produce ultrashort pulses in the extreme ultraviolet and soft-X-ray regimes from near infrared Ti-sapphire laser pulses. The ability of femtosecond lasers to efficiently fabricate complex structures and devices for a wide variety of applications has been extensively studied during the last decade. State-of-the-art laser processing techniques with ultrashort light pulses can be used to structure materials with a sub-micrometer resolution.
Direct laser writing DLW of suitable photoresists and other transparent media can create intricate three-dimensional photonic crystals PhC , micro-optical components, gratings, tissue engineering TE scaffolds and optical waveguides. Such structures are potentially useful for empowering next-generation applications in telecommunications and bioengineering that rely on the creation of increasingly sophisticated miniature parts.
The precision, fabrication speed and versatility of ultrafast laser processing make it well placed to become a vital industrial tool for manufacturing.
Among the applications of femtosecond laser, the microtexturization of implant surfaces have been experimented for the enhancement of the bone formation around zirconia dental implants. The technique demonstrated to be precise with a very low thermal damage and with the reduction of the surface contaminants. Posterior animal studies demonstrated that the increase on the oxygen layer and the micro and nanofeatures created by the microtexturing with femtosecond laser resulted in higher rates of bone formation, higher bone density and improved mechanical stability.

Ultrashort Laser Pulse Phenomena
The two-photon absorption induced fluorescence in a methanolic rhodamine 6G solution is used to measure the pulse duration of a cw femtosecond Kerr—lens mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser by a Michelson-interferometer-type autocorrelator arrangement. Interference-free autocorrelation traces are obtained by correlating perpendicular polarized pulses. The two-photon polarization parameter of rhodamine 6G is determined by contrast ratio measurement. The time resolution limits are discussed. This is a preview of subscription content, access via your institution.
