Abstract

Adaptive shaping of time-dependent polarization pulses is performed by reference to the analyzed results of dual-channel spectral interferometry. The desired pulses can be generated only by use of such a polarization-characterization technique. We demonstrate the generation of shaped femtosecond pulses whose ellipticity increases at a constant rate. The relative error between the shaped pulse and the target pulse is less than 6% over the main part of the pulse. Shaped time-dependent polarization pulses have many potential applications.
