Phase-locked two-color sub-40-fs double pulses in the visible are produced by noncollinear parametric amplification of white light tailored in a pulse shaper with a liquid-crystal mask. The carrier phase between the pulses is conserved during the amplification process and can be adjusted, as can the temporal separation and the center of wavelengths of the pulses.
