Electronically Programmable Femtosecond Pulse Shaping Using a Multielement Phase Modulator
Considerable progress has been made in developing techniques for generating ultrashort pulses with arbitrarily controllable pulse shapes [1–3]. Nevertherless, it has not generally been possible to achieve both high resolution and precision  and electronic programmability  simultaneously. In this paper we describe a programmable, high resolution, fsec pulse shaping apparatus based on a multielement liquid crystal phase modulator . Applications include fsec pulse position modulation and programmable fsec pulse compression.
