Propagation and Filamentation of Femtosecond Laser Pulses in Optical Media

Abstract

We discuss our recent results on the propagation dynamics of high-peak-power femtosecond laser pulses in optical media. A number of important nonlinear effects, such as white-light continuum generation, intensity clamping, transverse ring formation, and third-harmonic generation, are presented. It is shown that the self-steepening of the pulse has an… (More)
