Abstract

We report high-rate, computer-controlled femtosecond pulse shaping by use of an electro-optical gallium arsenide optical phased-array modulator with 2304 controlled waveguides. It provides fast modulation speed of both spectral phases and amplitudes. Limited by the driving electronics of our current setup, we were able to update a pulse shape in ∼30 ns. This technique paves the way toward individual shaping of every single pulse of typical femtosecond mode-locked oscillators.
