Abstract

Arbitrarily shaped femtosecond laser pulses can be obtained using amplitude-phase filters or a phase-only filter. The results with a phase-only filter, which does not cause damages in a process of the chirped pulse amplification, were presented. The system consisted of a mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser oscillator, a pulse shaping apparatus, a pulse stretcher, a regenerative amplifier and a pulse compressor. Phase-only filters were designed by simulated annealing optimization method for the targeted profiles.
