Optical heating of femtosecond laser filaments for longrange guidance of electrical discharges in air

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate that through conditioning dilute plasma in femtosecond laser filaments in air by an energetic nanosecond laser pulse, we reduce the breakdown voltage along the filament by up to the factor of 40.
