Abstract

Long-wave multi-joule ultrashort laser pulses are predicted to confine highly uniform electromagnetic energy and field intensities while sustaining high density uniform plasmas within nonlinear Bessel zones under extreme driving conditions in contrast to near-IR sources. This opens up novel applications in laser wakefield generation, radiofrequency/microwave guiding, and lightning control.
