Abstract

We use a spiral phase plate to generate few-cycle optical vortices from an ultrafast titanium:sapphire oscillator and characterize them in the spatiotemporal domain with a recently introduced technique based on spatially resolved Fourier transform spectrometry. The performance of this simple approach to the generation of optical vortices is analysed from a wavelength-dependent perspective as well as in the spatiotemporal domain, allowing us to characterize ultrashort vortex pulses in space, frequency and time.
