Abstract
We have performed analysis and experiments to demonstrate the feasibility of laser pulse shaping, based on the coherent synthesis of waveforms by phase locked oscillators. The approach is to control the frequency, amplitude and phase of a number of waveguide CO2 lasers and to synthesize pulses consistent with Fourier analysis. The laser frequency and phase are controlled with a crossover servo which drives a piezo-electric length tuner and an electro-optical crystal modulator. This approach has been demonstrated with a five-laser array producing pulses of a nominal 1.6 ns duration.
