Long range horizontal propagation of femtosecond self-channelled laser pulses in air Conference Paper uri icon


  • Using a multiterawatt femtosecond laser, we have studied long distance ( 2 km) filamentation in air as a function of initial pulse chirp. Ionized channels are observed over several hundred meters. 2000 Optical Society of America.
