We propose an experimental technique that allows for a complete characterization of the amplitude and phase of optical pulses in space and time. By the combination of a spatially resolved spectral measurement in the near and far fields and a frequency-resolved optical gating measurement, the electric field of the pulse is obtained through a fast, error-reduction algorithm.
