Abstract

We demonstrate for the first time that input polarisation control inducing one single filamentation is a very robust technique to accurately control the filamentation dynamics enhancing throughput energy of the supercontinuum generation up to 1.2 millijoule. Reaching the above-millijoule regime opens the way to post-compression of multi-terawatt laser pulses.
