Abstract

We have monitored the space–time transformation of a 150-fs pulse undergoing self-focusing and filamentation in water, by means of the nonlinear gating technique. We have observed that pulse splitting and subsequent recombination apply to axial temporal intensity only, whereas the space-integrated pulse profile preserves its original shape.
