The Frequency-Resolved Optical-Gating (FROG) technique has revolutionized our ability to measure and understand ultrashort laser pulses. This book contains everything you need to know to measure even the shortest, weakest, or most complex ultrashort laser pulses. Whether you're an undergrad or an advanced researcher, you'll find easy-to-understand descriptions of all the key ideas behind all the FROG techniques, all the practical details of pulse measurement, and many new directions of research. This book is not like any other scientific book. It is a lively discussion of the basic concepts. It is an advanced treatment of research-level issues. It includes a CD containing several polished PowerPoint lectures (in English and French) suitable for a graduate course. The CD also contains both PC and MAC versions of the FROG code, ready to retrieve pulses in the lab or just to learn how FROG works. It also contains several additional chapters by the world's leading experts on ultrashort pulse measurement, including a detailed description of measurements of the shortest pulse ever created. The image on the front cover of the book is a FROG trace of one of the shortest events ever created, a 4.5-fs laser pulse, measured by Baltuska, et al; JQE, 459 (1999)
