Abstract

The results of a theoretical study of the throughput efficiency limitations of passive picosecond pulse shapers are presented. One goal of the authors was to provide a point of reference with which various pulse shaper schemes can be compared. The maximum efficiency of any general pulse stacker is derived and the special cases of pseudosquare, linear ramps, and exponential pulse distributions treated in detail.
