One dimensional case, for example, an electron bunch temporal profile reconstruction, is particularly challenging. Frequently applied methods, are reliable if the Blaschke phase [10-12] contribution is negligible. This, however, is neither known a priori nor can it be assumed for an arbitrary profile. In this work we present a novel algorithm with additional constraints which gives reproducible, stable solutions for profiles, both artificial and experimental, otherwise unresolved by existing techniques.
