In this paper we discuss the most prominent and widely used pulse characterization techniques, capable of measuring the electric field amplitude and phase of laser pulses of only few optical cycles in length. The measurement and stabilization of the carrier envelope phase, paramount in a range of applications, is also treated in some detail.
