Pulse shaping with birefringent crystals: a tool for quantum metrology    [PDF]

Guillaume Labroille, Olivier Pinel, Nicolas Treps, Manuel Joffre
A method for time differentiation based on a Babinet-Soleil-Bravais compensator is introduced. The complex transfer function of the device is measured using polarization spectral interferometry. Time differentiation of both the pulse field and pulse envelope are demonstrated over a spectral width of about 100 THz with a measured overlap with the objective mode greater than 99.8%. This pulse shaping technique is shown to be perfectly suited to time metrology at the quantum limit.
