Abstract

We present a shaper scheme that fully controls the spectral phase, amplitude, and polarization of femtosecond laser pulses. In particular, it enables independent manipulation over the major axis orientation and the axis ratio of the polarization ellipse. This is accomplished by integrating a 4f-shaper setup in both arms of a Mach–Zehnder interferometer and rotating the polarization by 90° in one of the arms before overlaying the beams. The generated pulses are resolved in a simple and intuitive detection scheme.
