We achieved reliable and stable generation of pulses with all possible polarization states by a Mach–Zehnder pulse shaper. This was realized by incorporating a stabilization mechanism using an external laser diode in the interferometric pulse shaper. This stabilization mechanism has overcome an inherent instability in the Mach–Zehnder interferometer, which caused serious distortion of shaped pulses. For a demonstration of polarization shaping, we generated and measured chiral pulses with a rotating major axis of polarizing orientations at arbitrary frequencies. We expect these chiral pulses enables us to study on new chirality-related light-matter interactions.
