Abstract

We report programmable shaping of femtosecond optical pulses by use of a multielement liquid-crystal modulator to manipulate the phases of spatially dispersed optical frequency components. Our approach provides for continuously variable control of the optical phase and permits the pulse shape to be reconfigured on a millisecond time scale. We use the apparatus to demonstrate femtosecond pulse-position modulation as well as programmable compression of chirped femtosecond pulses.
