By producing non-collinear optical amplification (NOPA) with an internal acousto-optic modulator (AOM), we generate amplified shaped ultrashort pulses (~5µJ, <50fs) tunable from 500 to 700nm with up to 50THz bandwidths. The shaped pulses are fully characterized by a variation of the spectrally and temporally resolved up-conversion technique (STRUT).
