Abstract

An optical pulse-shaping system using an electro-optic modulator driven by an aperture-coupled-stripline (ACSL) electrical-waveform generator has been developed. The ACSL electrical-waveform generator consists of two electrical striplines stacked and coupled through an aperture layer. By changing the aperture layer, the pulse-shaping system is capable of producing arbitrarily shaped optical pulses with 100-ps structure over a 1- to 5-ns pulse envelope.
