Optimal pulse compression via sequential filamentation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


We demonstrate theoretically and experimentally a robust method based on sequential filamentation to optimize compression of high-energy pulses in gases. We gain insight into this process by comparing compression dynamics for linear- and circularly-polarized pulses.
