We show that the anti-resonant ring is a versatile detection arrangement in ultrafast spectroscopy, allowing very accurate optical removal of the probe-laser background light and slow effects, independent measurement of absorption and refractive-index transients through optical homodyning, and maximal signal-to-noise ratios.
