Femtosecond pulses can be shaped in the time domain by diffraction from dynamic holograms in a photorefractive multiple quantum well placed inside a Fourier pulse shaper. We present several examples of shaped pulses obtained by controlling the amplitude or the phase of the hologram writing beams, which modifies the complex spectrum of the femtosecond output.
