Abstract

A germanium acousto-optic modulator (Ge AOM) is utilized in high resolution phase and amplitude shaping of IR light between 2 and 18 μm. Shaped waveforms centered at 4.9 μm are demonstrated in both the time and frequency domains. The phase stability of the shaped pulse is measured by cross-correlation with an unshaped mid-IR pulse, indicating that such shaped pulses can be readily incorporated into phase sensitive experiments. This Ge AOM will enable new experiments in 2D IR spectroscopy and coherent control on the ground electronic state.
