Abstract

The first demonstration to our knowledge in the spectral range from 300 to 1100nm is presented for the amplitude modulation characteristics of a two-channel 648-pixel liquid crystal spatial light modulator. The broadest spectral amplitude modulation for UV (380–420nm) and visible-to-near-IR (500–900nm) pulses to generate a spectral-shifted pulse pair is experimentally realized. The results show that the liquid crystal spatial light modulator has a potential application for attosecond extreme-UV pulse characterization with the conventional SPIDER algorithm and the capability to shape monocycle optical pulses.
