    Abstract

    We demonstrated accurate pulse shaping of amplified femtosecond laser pulses by modulating the amplitude and the phase prior to regenerative chirped-pulse amplification. Based on a spectral interferometer, the pulse shaper was adjusted to compensate for a transfer function of the amplifier consisting of the gain narrowing and self-phase modulation. We performed experiments aiming at selective bond breaking in such as a simple C-C-O structure by utilizing the comprehensive pulse shaping technology, which can produce almost arbitrarily shaped 800-nm laser pulses in the amplitude and the phase at peak intensities up to ∼4 × 1015 W/cm2 range.
