Effects of pulse shaping in laser spectroscopy

Journal Article

We have shown theoretically and experimentally that specially shaped laser pulses can give enhanced excitation selectivity, compensate for experimental complications such as inhomogeneities and pulse amplitude jitter, and cleanly pump forbidden transitions. A new approach to generating picosecond pulses, which does not require modelocking, permits software controlled, arbitrarily shaped (phase and amplitude modulated) pulses with roughly 1 ps resolution. © 1987 SPIE.
