Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


A linear self-referenced technique for temporal characterization of ultraweak pulse trains is presented. Shot-noise limited time-resolved single photon detection enables temporal resolution down to 10fs for pulse trains with ~ 1 photon per pulse.
