We describe a femtosecond pulse shaper using a deformable membrane mirror. The pulses are measured with a real time second-harmonic-generation frequency-resolved optical gating system. Pulse shapes are modified according to a prescribed spectral phase. Accurate spectral phase design as well as pulse intensity modulation was achieved by using negative feedback mirror-surface control. Convergence to the chosen spectral phase design was typically achieved within several seconds. © 2003 Optical Society of America.
