We investigate the characteristics of an all-reflective interferometric autocorrelator in which the reflective beam splitter has functions as a beam splitter and an optical delay line. Theoretical autocorrelation functions are derived as functions of the beam profile, gap width, and alignment conditions. The results are compared with experiments in order to verify their practical use.
