Focusing of Femtosecond Pulse by using a High-NA Off-Axis Parabolic Mirror

To fully characterize the focusing behavior of an ultrashort pulse, different electromagnetic properties must be considered. That includes both spatial distribution, temporal / spectral distribution, vectorial effect, and also the possible coupling between the above. As an example, the focusing process of a 10 fs pulse by using a high-NA parabolic mirror is modeled in VirtualLab, and both the spatial and temporal behaviors are investigated.
