Abstract

As a calibration method for frequency-domain filters in Fourier-transform synthesis of arbitrarily shaped laser pulses, the spatial amplitude and phase profile of the filter were reconstructed from the synthesized temporal pulse shape and its spectrum using a simple iterative method. We also developed a design procedure for phase-only filters to synthesize both temporal phase and amplitude even for asymmetric pulse profiles of femtosecond laser pulses.
