The population-split genetic algorithm (PSGA) was successfully applied to retrieve femtosecond optical fields from interferometric autocorrelation traces. PSGA strikes a balance between diversity and the size of population in the genetic algorithm. As a result, PSGA is less likely prematurely converging to sub-optimal solutions. Theoretical and experimental studies indicate that the PSGA can yield more accurate results in shorter time compared with conventional genetic algorithm and the… CONTINUE READING
