We demonstrate for the first time active dispersion and amplitude correction in a fiber laser producing sub-45 fs pulses. The approach is based on single-shot second and third order dispersion measurement based on multiphoton intrapulse interference. The same principle is applied to obtain time-resolved measurements of the transient dispersion induced by an intense laser pulse on a silica window.
