Abstract

Diffraction of finite sized laser beams imposes a limit on the control that can be exerted over ultrafast pulses. This limit manifests as spatio-temporal coupling induced in standard implementations of pulse shaping schemes. We demonstrate the influence this has on coherent control experiments that depend on finite excitation, sample, and detection volumes. Based on solutions used in pulse stretching experiments, we introduce a double-pass scheme that reduces the errors produced through spatio-temporal coupling by at least one order of magnitude. Finally, employing single molecules as nanoscale probes, we prove that such a double pass scheme is capable of artifact-free pulse shaping at dimensions two orders of magnitude smaller than the diffraction limit.

Fig. 1

The standard single-pass configurations of pulse shapers based on a) Spatial Light Modulators (SLM) and b) Acousto-Optic Programmable Dispersive Filters (AOPDF). In both cases, different phase shifts applied to different spectral components will cause a spatial displacement in the output beam; this is called spatio-temporal coupling.

a-b: Spatial profiles of a laser beam with 20 nm spectral bandwidth after passing through a single-pass AOPDF-based shaper. A cosinusoidal (a) and sinusoidal (b) amplitude modulation is applied on top of a −36000 fs2 compensation phase to create two phase-locked pulses with 0 and π phase difference, respectively, and 100 fs delay time. c: The difference between the images in a and b reveals clear spatial intensity modulations of up to 30% of the local intensity.

a) 5x5 µm2 scan of a sample of regularly arranged gold-nanoparticles with a diameter of 100 nm. The emission intensity is color coded with high signal indicated by white. b) Normalized photoluminescence as a function of inter-pulse delay at constant phase difference for a single Au-particle placed at different positions in the excitation focus, indicated by the colored circles in a. Here, the pulse sequences were created with a single-pass AOPDF.

Fig. 4

A laser beam with Gaussian spatial and spectral profile is propagated through a single-pass (top row, a-d) and a double-pass 4f-pulse shaper (bottom row, e-h), respectively. For both shaper configurations a quadratic phase mask is applied to compensate for 25000 fs2 dispersion and an additional amplitude mask is imprinted to create a phase-locked pulse pair with 50 fs delay and 0 (π) rad relative phase. The intensity profiles of the beam are shown in a wavelength-space (λ-x) frame (a-c and e-g), together with the integrated spectral intensity below each profile for the incoming (a,e, black curve), 0 phase (b,f, red curve), and π phase shaped beam (c,g, blue curve).The corresponding integrated spatial intensity profiles are depicted in the rightmost panel (d,h).
