Application Note: Short Pulse Shaping

Pulse shaping is a powerful optical technique whereby the Fourier-domain of a pulse or sequence of pulses is manipulated in order to alter its properties. The WaveShaper 1000/SP series of Single-Polarization Programmable Filters has been optimized to deliver superior performance and flexibility in user operation for shaping of ultra-short laser pulses.

This application note provides an overview of the principles of pulse shaping, WaveShaper functionality, and applications in the field. This will cover the theoretical foundation of pulse shaping and its physical implementation in the WaveShaper, as well as providing several examples which illustrate the capability of this technology.
