Shaping of the phase, amplitude, and polarization state of an ultrashort pulse is demonstrated using a novel arrangement of a single, linear, high-resolution liquid crystal array. Orthogonal polarization components, separated by a Wollaston prism, are manipulated independently and re-combined in a near-common path, common-optic geometry.
