Abstract

We propose that the bending profile of a mechanical deformable mirror can be designed by shaping its form, realizing a simple, compact, and broadband group delay dispersion compensator in a 4-f pulse shaper arrangement. By using the proposed compensator, spectral phase distortion of a microscope objective lens is successfully pre-compensated for to generate a sub-8 fs pulse at the focus of the lens.

(a) Schematic diagram of the GDD compensator with a specially shaped DM. G: Diffraction grating (200/mm). CM: concave mirror (f=150 mm). FM: folding mirror. DM: deformable mirror. (b) Shape of the designed DM. Broken lines indicate the horizontal positions at which 650-nm, 800-nm, 950-nm wavelength lights are reflected.

Results of the design of the DM. (a) Spectral phase introduced by the GDD compensator (solid line) and induced beam position shift (broken line) as functions of wavelength. (b) Deformation (solid line) and width (broken line) of the DM as functions of the position of the DM. The origin of DM position x corresponds to the point where 800-nm wavelength light is reflected.
