Abstract

Spatiotemporal pulse shaping is characterized with two-dimensional Fourier transform spectral interferometry. A deformable-mirror-based bidimensional pulse shaper is used to create simple spatiotemporal structures on a femtosecond pulse, structures that are directly calculated from the measured spatiospectral phases and intensities.
