Fig. 1

CE and laser pattern measured after 20 m of propagation in air. (a) Surrounding CE only, with the power spectrum close to that of the incident laser pulse removed by a color filter placed at z = 10 m . The wavelengths between 380 and 420 nm have been removed. (b) Total laser beam (strongly attenuated) at the same distance (false colors).

Radius of the CE (half-width at half-maximum) as a function of wavelength measured at 15 m .

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

(a) Calculated peak intensity (solid curve) of the pulse at 406 nm as a function of propagation distance. Also shown is the density of generated free electrons (dashed curve). (b) Calculated beam width as a function of distance. The curves correspond to contours for the fluence distribution at 90%, 50% and 10% of the maximum fluence at each distance.

(a) Calculated and (b) measured beam intensity profile at 20 m , showing the presence of a narrow core surrounded by a weaker ring.

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

(a) Spectrum of the filament measured on axis after 15 m of propagation. The recorded spectrum is averaged over 100 laser shots (collecting angle, 0.16 mrad ). (b) Numerical simulation obtained with an incident laser energy of 0.4 mJ .

Comparison between (a), (c) measured and (b), (d) calculated r λ diagram at 10 m for two incident pulse energies. The grayscale is logarithmic with a 2 decade dynamic range.
