Abstract

Ultraviolet and infrared conical emissions were observed during the filamentation in air of powerful femtosecond laser pulses produced by a portable terawatt laser system. The broadband spectrum was measured from 200nm up to 14μm and covered the complete optical transmission window of the atmosphere. The angularly resolved spectrum showed some X-wave structure across the frequency range analyzed. However, we demonstrated that the strong conical emission observed in the mid- and far-infrared is mainly owing to the four-wave mixing between the pump pulse and its blueshifted conical emission.

(a) Angularly resolved spectrum generated during the filamentation in air by laser pulses having an energy of 60 mJ and a pulse duration of 42 fs . The horizontal axis is a logarithmic scale for the frequency. The false colors associated with the spectrum are related to the relative spectral intensity. The gray curve is the angular position of the CE according to the X-wave dispersion equation, and the white curve is the angular position of the infrared CE according to the off-axis 4WM process. The white arrows point out the central frequency of the pump pulse and its TH. (b) Linear refractive index of air calculated using a Sellmeier-type model [16] for a pressure of 1 atm , a temperature of 15 ° C , and a relative humidity of 40%.
