# Why the amplitude of the final pulses are different from the input pulse?

I have a gaussian pulse in time. I want to shift it in time. So I am putting the linear spectral phase modulation to it. But the amplitude is different from the input pulse while I take the input as Cos(wt) and Exp(iwt). please give some suggestions.
Codes are following:
t=-50:0.0001:50;
f=0.375; %centre frequency
w0=2*pi*f; %centre frequency in rad/s
t0=0;
alpha=17
T=5;
F=(-500000:500000)/((1000001)*0.0001); %frequency scale
w=2*pi*F;
m=length(w);
d=mean(diff(w));
Fs=(w(2)-w(1))*m/(2*pi);
Ts=1/Fs;
t1=Ts*(-(m)/2:(m-1)/2); %time scale after IFFT
w_ref=2*pi*0.375;
y=exp(-((t-t0)/T).^2).*cos(1*w0*(t)); %Input pulse (It is giving smaller amplitude)
% OR
%y=exp(-((t-t0)/T).^2).*exp(i*w0*(t));
y0=0.1*cos(w0*t);
Y=(fft((y)));
Y1=fftshift(Y);
Ew=Y.*M_w; %Modulated spectrum
Ew1=Y1.*M_w;
Et=ifft(ifftshift(Ew1)); %Shaped pulse
I=(Et).^2;
P=angle(Ew1);
P=unwrap(P); %Phase
subplot(2,2,1)
plot(t,(y))
%xlim([-0.5 4])

xlim([0.35 0.45])

subplot(2,2,3)
