Abstract

We demonstrate self-compression of deep-ultraviolet (DUV) pulses by filamentation in krypton. In contrast to self-compression in the near-infrared, that in the DUV is associated with a red-shifted sub-pulse appearing in the pulse temporal profile. The achieved pulse width of 15 fs is the shortest among demonstrated sub-mJ deep-ultraviolet pulses.
