Abstract

We report a new approach to the generation of arbitrary sequences of ultrafast pulses using an integrated optics space-to-time optical processor. The processor combines a reflective arrayed waveguide grating multiplexer with a phase-only mask containing sets of pixels of constant phase separated by sets of pixels with phases alternating between 0 and π rad.
