In this Letter we show how encoding techniques for computer-generated holograms may be used to arbitrarily shape a nonlinearly generated spectrum and consequently the temporal shape by modulating the quadratic nonlinear coefficient. We give examples of a modulation pattern and a simple setup that can generate high-order Hermite–Gauss and Airy functions through difference-frequency generation from a transform-limited Gaussian pulse, under practical fabrication considerations.
