  • Abstract: strong>developments in the techniques of generation and measurement of picosecond and sub-picosecond pulses from mode-locked lasers are reviewed. Particular attention is paid to frequency tunable, bandwidth-limited pulses from dye lasers, especially the cw dye laser. In measurement the main emphasis is put on the rapid advances of the last few years in ultra-fast streak-cameras, ans the recent developments in streak-camera synchronization to a cw mode-locked laser is described. Future prospects for shorter wavelenght pulses in the uv and vuv are briefly considered.
