Abstract
We report on a computer-controlled pulse-shaper setup with high-efficiency throughput, based on dispersive prisms, as an alternative to the conventional grating ultrafast pulse-shaping apparatus. A detailed description of the experimental apparatus and operation of this system is given. The advantages and disadvantages of this configuration are discussed. Experimental implementation of the prism pulse shaper in recovering nearly bandwidth-limited laser pulses from chirped ultrafast laser pulses is demonstrated using both closed-loop and open-loop operation.
