Abstract
The spatiotemporal coupling effect in ultrafast light pulses is described by the Wigner distribution function. This approach enables us to calculate: the output electric field intensity profile by defocusing lenses, grating pairs with different grating constants, lenses with different focal lengths, and combinations of these in pulse shapers. We also gain a clear understanding of the spatiotemporal properties of pulse shaping.
