Femtosecond pulse splitting, supercontinuum generation and conical emission in normally dispersive media

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In this paper, reported is a self-consistent theory of critical self-focusing in the presence of normal group velocity dispersion. The underlying physical phenomena are all contained in the spatiotemporal dynamics of short laser pulses described by the nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLS). This work will show that the conical emission predicted by this equation is due to a fundamental four-wave interaction that promotes the transport of energy and modes with finite frequency and energy shifts.
