Characterization and optimization of infrared emission from light filaments observed in a fs-TW laser beam propagating in the atmosphere Conference Paper uri icon


  • The optimization of the infrared component of the continuum emitted from light filaments was characterized. The infrared emission efficiency was studied as a function of laser pulse energy, duration and frequency chirp. Different beam transmission configurations were also studied for LIDAR purposes.
