Break-up, coalescence and self-guiding of femtosecond laser pulses in air | Academic Article individual record
abstract

Femtosecond laser pulses propagating in air are investigated. For input powers as high as 25 times the self-focusing threshold, the pulses are shown to break up into two spots, which coalesce into a self-guided beam.
