We explore a new approach for measuring the time domain structure of ultra fast single photon pulses at telecom wavelength based on the quantum pulse gate (QPG) recently introduced by our group . Our dispersion engineered QPG enables efficient group-velocity matched sum frequency conversion where the converted photon is in the visible range, which allows for easy detection. The temporal resolution of the process can be as short as the pump pulse duration, which is in the range of 100 fs. We propose to use this device for direct quantum pulse characterization in the time domain by sampling the single photon pulse with a short pump pulse.
