Integrated Pulse Shaping Devices

Pulse shaping devices are the key elements for optical signal processing that are capable of reshaping the temporal waveform of optical pulses.  The applications of pulse shaping devices include ultrahigh-speed optical telecommunication, ultrafast all-optical computing and information processing, biomedical imaging, and electronic and photonic signal/device characterization and monitoring. For these applications, ultrafast optical waveform shapers capable of synthesizing temporal waveform features down to the sub-picosecond regime are required.
