Paper Abstract

We report on the shaping and stretching of nanosecond, linearly chirped pulses. The temporal response of linearly chirped pulses shaped by a unit-step spectral mask is examined. Schemes for the shaping of narrow-band nanosecond pulses are also introduced. Experimental and theoretical results show that spectral pulse-shaping techniques provide the required stability, flexibility, fast rise time, and high contrast for laser-fusion research.
