  • We experimentally demonstrate the generation of 5.0-fs optical pulses (2.5μJ, 1-kHz repetition rate), using only a spatial light modulator for phase compensation. Pulse compression of the broadband pulse (500-1000 nm) from an argon-filled capillary fiber is achieved with a liquid-crystal spatial light modulator without any prechirp compensation. The output pulse width is found to be 4.1 fs by a fringe-resolved autocorrelator fitted with a transform-limited pulse and to be 5.0 fs by second-harmonic generation frequency-resolved optical gating with marginal correction. It is to our knowledge the shortest pulse ever generated by use of only a spatial light modulator for phase compensation.
