The field amplitude associated with ultrashort light pulses was analyzed by using the phase-space formalism of the Wigner distribution function (WDF). The diffraction integral was properly modified to take into account the dispersion effects (up to second order). A two-dimensional WDF associated with a reduced pupil function was derived, from which the on… CONTINUE READING
