We demonstrate control over attosecond-pulse generation and shaping by numerically optimizing the synthesis of few-cycle to subcycle driver wave forms. The optical wave-form synthesis takes place in an ultrabroad spectral band covering the ultraviolet-infrared domain. These optimized driver waves are used for ultrashort single- and double-attosecond-pulse production (with tunable separation), revealing the potentials of the light wave synthesizer device demonstrated by A. Wirth et al. [Science 334, 195 (2011)SCIEAS0036-807510.1126/science.1210268]. The robustness of the results are also analyzed with respect to attosecond-pulse propagation phenomena.
