Abstract

We present a diffractive phase variable attenuator for femtosecond laser radiation control. It allows the control of beam power up to 0.75 10 <sup>13</sup> W/cm<sup>2</sup> without introducing serious distortions in spectra and beam shape while it operates in zero order diffraction. The attenuator can operate with wavelengths from DUV to IR. © 2009 Optical Society of America.
