Abstract

We construct a line-by-line pulse shaper using a grism dispersive element, which provides constant angular dispersion over 13.4 THz centered at 311 THz (965 nm). When combined with a dual-mask liquid crystal modulator, this grism-based shaper is capable of line-by-line amplitude and phase control of over 600 modes of a 21 GHz optical frequency comb.
