Femtosecond laser filamentation and applications

Aurélien Houard
André Mysyrowicz


Femtosecond filamentation is a spectacular phenomenon whereby a short laser pulse propagates nonlinearly through a transparent medium allowing high peak light intensities to be transferred over distances far exceeding the beam Rayleigh length, as if diffraction were suppressed. In this chapter, after a brief description of some key features of filamentation, we put the accent upon some potential applications.
