Paper Abstract

We use two Pockels cells in series to achieve simple temporal pulse shaping. This technique is used in our optical parametric chirp pulse amplification (OPCPA) system to optimize the temporal shape of the pump pulse. It also offers a low cost alternative to arbitrary waveform generators.
