We introduce the translating wedge-based identical pulses encoding system, a novel device for the generation of collinear, interferometrically locked ultrashort pulse pairs. By means of birefringent wedges, we are able to control the pulse delay with attosecond precision and stability better that λ/360, without affecting the pulse duration and in a spectral range that spans from UV to mid-IR. This device is expected to dramatically simplify two-dimensional spectroscopy experiments.
