Abstract.

A novel liquid crystal display (LCD) with 640 stripes was successfully implemented and investigated for femtosecond pulse shaping. As compared to previously used devices, the large active area allows for operation in high-power laser systems. The increased number of pixels greatly enlarges the manifold of accessible pulse modulations, making the device an ideal tool for coherent control experiments and optical information processing.
