We present first direct observation of the propagation of a femtosecond laser pulse in space and time through a waveguide structure. With an interferometric photon scanning tunneling microscope (PSTM), the local amplitude and phase of the pulse were retrieved with high spatial, spectral and time resolution. The relative field profiles, the wave vectors and the spectra of the pulses in the TE00 and TE01 modes in the waveguide have been experimentally determined.
