Paper Abstract

The femtosecond pulse quality in a laser system is determined by a non-compensated high-order dispersion and spectral deformation of the amplifier. A dispersive device that modifies the spectral amplitude and phase of the femtosecond pulse should be used to improve the duration of the compressed pulse and suppress the prepulses. The application of acousto-optical dispersive delay lines is considered. Different modifications of delay lines are compared and the types of devices used to shape femtosecond pulses are discussed. Several experimental dispersive delay lines were fabricated and investigated.
