Abstract

Nonlinear interaction of two femtosecond laser pulses in a filament, induced by one of them inside a fused silica plate, leads to generation of the new spectral components. These spectral components reach hundreds of nanometers bandwidth. Their spatial and spectral properties can be explained by four-wave parametric coupling in the filament. The energy measurements indicate the high efficiency of this process.
