Automated pulse compression through adaptive phase distortion compensation and compensation of gain narrowing of femtosecond regeneratively amplified pulses (2.5 mJ, 27.6 fs, transform limited) using a MIIPS-enabled pre-amplification pulse shaper is demonstrated. Rigorous characterization of the shaped pulses is presented.
