Abstract

Time shaping of ultra-short visible pulses has been performed using a specially designed acousto-optic programmable dispersive filter of 50% efficiency at the output of a two-stage non-collinear optical parametric amplifier. The set-up is compact and reliable. It provides a tunable shaped source in the visible with unique features: a 4-ps shaping window with preserved tunability over 500–650 nm, and pulses as short as 30 fs. Several-μJ output energy is easily obtained.
