Paper Abstract

A temporal analysis of a linear system is given. Through specific analytical pulse shapes, general principles of pulse shaping are deduced. A commonly used optical device in the pulse compression technique, the so-called Treacy's grating pair, is re-examined and its corrected group delay and dispersion are re-derived. The main features of this device, relevant to pulse compression, are also presented
