The pulse duration is controlled by Dazzler and measured by SPIDER. Dazzler - is a turn-key ultrafast pulse shaping system, performing simultaneous and independent spectral phase and amplitude programming of ultrafast laser pulses. Dazzler systems inserted in CPA systems can pre-compensate gain narrowing and to compensate high order phase distortions, thus enabling the generation of shorter and cleaner ultrafast pulses. SPIDER - Single shot, high contrast pulse measurement.
