Abstract
Both in-phase and out-phase radially polarized femtosecond-pulse (RPFP) beams have been generated with one phase-only liquid crystal spatial light modulator, which effectively modulates the phase retardation distributions of a pulse beam wavefront by two reflections. The intensity distributions and polarizing properties of both in-phase and out-phase RPFP beams are detected, and the temporal properties of in-phase RPFP beams are investigated in detail. Experimental results indicate that we effectively produce an RPFP beam. And the temporal duration of the output in-phase RPFP beam is 183 fs about 14 fs shorter than the input Gaussian femtosecond-pulse beam. The temporal durations of arbitrary polarized components of an in-phase RPFP beam vary less than 3.5%.
