Break-up, coalescence and self-guiding of femtosecond laser pulses in air

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Femtosecond laser pulses propagating in air are investigated. For input powers as high as 25 times the self-focusing threshold, the pulses are shown to break up into two spots, which coalesce into a self-guided beam.
