Abstract

By adaptive control of both spectral phase and amplitude of seed pulses with an acousto-optic programmable dispersion filter located before a pulse stretcher, accurate pulse shaping was achieved for ultrashort laser pulses delivered through a regenerative amplifier. Two-dimensional patterns obtained from frequency-resolved optical gating were used for calculating cost functions in an adaptive control algorithm without pulse shape reconstruction during the control of pulse shape.
