Abstract
The considerable potential of advanced thin-film microoptics for tailoring light fields of pulsed high-power lasers even at extreme parameters like ultrashort pulse durations, broad spectral bandwidths or vacuum ultraviolet wavelengths is demonstrated. A comprehensive review of the state of the art and the most relevant aspects of this branch of modern optics is given. In particular, applications of structured dielectric, metallic and compound layers and programmable liquid-crystal devices for control and diagnostics of ultrashort pulses in space and time are discussed. Recent theoretical and experimental results of wavefront sensing, pulse diagnostics, multichannel materials processing and information encoding into the phase maps of arrayed pulsed beams of nondiffracting propagation characteristics are presented here.
