This study describes first steps taken to bring evolutionary optimization technology from computer simulations to real world experimentation in physics laboratories. The approach taken considers a well understood Laser Pulse Compression problem accessible both to simulation and laboratory experimentation as a test function for variants of Evolution Strategies. The main focus lies on coping with the unavoidable noise present in laboratory experimentation. Results from simulations are compared to previous studies and to laboratory experiments.
