Polarization gating is used to extend a real-time, single-shot, carrier-envelope phase (CEP) measurement, based on high-energy above-threshold ionization in xenon, to the multi-cycle regime. The single-shot CEP precisions achieved are better than 175 and 350 mrad for pulse durations up to 10 fs and 12.5 fs, respectively, while only 130 mu J of pulse energy are required. This opens the door to study and control of CEP-dependent phenomena in ultra-intense laser-matter interaction using optical parametric chirped pulse amplifier based tera- and petawatt class lasers.
