Femtosecond laser-guided electric discharge in air Academic Article uri icon


  • A new type of reproducible laser-guided electric discharge in air is highlighted. The discharge is triggered by the expansion of a thin hot air wire produced by a self-guided IR femtosecond laser pulse. This type of electric discharge may find applications when on axis uniformity is crucial.
