UPLiFT (Ultrashort Pulse Lasers in Frequency and Time)

by: Aram Gragossian

You can choose a material from a long list and calculate refractive index, dispersion coefficients (second, third and fourth order), walk-off between two wavelengths and pulse duration after propagation. The boxes with light blue background are the inputs. In this program, pulse duration after propagation is most accurate for transform limited pulses (chirp parameter zero). If the pulse is not transform limited, the proggram assigns a chirp parameter to it and calculated pulse duration and phase [ J. C. Diels and W. Rudolph, Ultrashort Laser Pulse Phenomena, 2nd Ed. (Academic, 2006) chapter 1]. You can download and install this program as a MATLAB app.
