Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate the generation and characterization of polarization-shaped femtosecond laser pulses in the ultraviolet at a central wavelength of 400 nm . Near-infrared laser pulses are first polarization shaped and then frequency doubled in an interferometrically stable setup that employs two perpendicularly oriented nonlinear crystals. A new pulse shaper design involving volume phase holographic gratings reduces losses and hence leads to an increase in pulse energy.
