Abstract

We present a diffractive phase variable attenuator for femtosecond laser radiation control. It allows the control of beam power up to 0.75·1013W/cm2 without introducing serious distortions in spectra and beam shape while it operates in zero order diffraction. The attenuator can operate with wavelengths from DUV to IR.
