Section 4: Ultrafast Pulse-Shaping

The concept of pulse shaping typically refers to modifications of pulses in the time domain, but some pulse shapers can also extend to the frequency or spatial domain. The concepts behind pulse-shapers can seem hard to understand at first, so we will go through the main details of what it means to pulse-shape followed by examples of industrial pulse-shapers. Pulse-shapers are an incredibly powerful tool in the lab, so read on to find out how they can make your life better!
