Paper Abstract

A basic recipe for spatial shaping of spectrally and temporally partially coherent broadband pulsed fields like supercontinuum pulses is discussed. To shape these pulsed beams from Gaussian to flat-top shape, a shaping element is designed using the optical map transform method. The spatial profiles show a high quality flat-top region and the time integrated intensity profile is also of high quality flat-top shape. The spatiotemporal target field distribution is shown to bend, which is of practical importance in time-resolved experiments in ultrafast optics.
