Spectral Phase Measurement System SPIDER

The SPIDER (Spectral Phase Interferometry for Direct Electric field Reconstruction) device provides precise phase-amplitude measurement of ultrashort laser pulses. It is widely used for on-line tuning of amplifier systems. Its measurement range goes from spectral phase, spectral and temporal intensity up to an autocorrelation function. The SPIDER features a USB connection with acquisition and analysis software.

The SPIDER (Spectral Phase Interferometry for Direct Electric field Reconstruction) system provides precise phase-amplitude measurement of ultrashort laser pulses. The device is widely used for on-line tuning of amplifier systems. Its measurement range goes from spectral phase, spectral and temporal intensity up to an autocorrelation function. It also displays an autocorrelation function.

The principle of operation is based on spectral shearing interferometry. The spectral phase property is reconstructed from a spectral interferogram registered by a CCD. The other CCD records the spectral amplitude of the input pulse. The phase-amplitude characteristic in the time domain is obtained by a Fourier transformation of the spectral phase-amplitude characteristic. The reconstruction algorithm used is linear and non-iterative.

The SPIDER features a USB connection and includes Windows acquisition and analysis software. The unit has a built-in two-channel spectrometer for spectra registration and a CCD camera for easier alignment at low repetition rates.
