Abstract

Experimental results of a practical self-learning pulse-shaping system are presented. Real-time adaptive pulse shaping of uncharacterized pulses is achieved. A cross-correlation feedback measurement of the output pulses is used by a simulated-annealing algorithm to modify the pulses iteratively toward target shapes. This scheme can readily be used for coherent control of quantum dynamics.
