The dispersion properties of reflective surfaces become increasingly important for short pulse measurements. The discussion will focus, in particular, on considerations regarding incorporation of temporal dispersion with angular dispersion in reflective optical systems.

Key words: angular and optical resolutions, propagation and reflection, optical system design, picosecond pulses
