Abstract

We demonstrate a technique for correcting arbitrary spectral-phase aberrations in a single iteration with no reference pulse. By utilizing spectral-phase interferometry for direct electric field reconstruction and a programmable liquid-crystal spatial light modulator, we have achieved compression of complex pulse shapes from nearly picosecond extent down to 70 fs.
