Abstract

We demonstrate the performance of a new passive picosecond optical pulse-shaping setup by a direct comparison between numerically calculated results and actual experimental measurements. The shaping process is based on the space-to-time transformation property of a spectroscope arrangement. Two configurations are considered, which give rise to a 36-ps square pulse and a 7.2-ps truncated odd dark pulse.
