Parametrically polarization shaped pulses guided via a hollow core photonic crystal fiber for coherent control

Abstract

We present ultrafast polarization pulse shaping through a micro structured hollow core photonic crystal fiber. The pulses are shaped in pulse sequences in which the energy, distance, phases, and chirps as well as the state of polarization of each individual sub-pulse can be independently controlled. The application of these pulses for coherent control is demonstrated for feedback loop optimization of the multi-photon ionization of potassium dimers. In a second experiment, this process is investigated by shaper-assisted pump–probe spectroscopy which is likewise performed with pulses that are transmitted through the fiber. Both techniques reveal the excitation pathway including the dynamics in the participating electronic states and expose the relevance of the polarization. These methods will be valuable for endoscopic applications.
