Time shaping of ultrashort UV pulses has been performed using a specially designed acousto-optic programmable dispersive filter in KDP material. A time window shaping up to 4 ps has been obtained on the 250–410 nm range. Characterization by difference frequency mixing as well as two-photon absorption in diamond has been used.
