Application of parametric time and frequency domain shaping

Abstract.

We present two novel types of parameterizations for optical control experiments, executed by pulse shaping and evolution strategies on the NaK system. The first is a time domain approach with a pulse parameterization with few, intuitive parameters such as temporal subpulse distances, energies, chirps, and phase differences. It will address the reproducibility and complexity issues that occur when employing non-deterministic algorithms in complex search spaces. The second approach, a ‘transition finder’ algorithm uses a parameterization in the frequency domain to expose the most important transition frequencies within the laser pulse spectrum, which would not be found otherwise.
