We examined the range of shape factor of the Gabor wavelet in the analysis of spectral phase retrieval with an interferogram. We demonstrated that for the pulses with moderate high order phase the accuracy of the retrieved phase is insensitive to the shaping factor in the range of 1∼20. Both simulated ideal Gaussian spectrum and actual non-Gaussian spectrum are applied in the analysis.
