Abstract

Simulations in water are performed, showing that chromatic dispersion is a key player in determining the spectral extent of SC generation in addition to intensity clamping. The role of chromatic dispersion for SC generation in fibers is already recognized. In bulk media, however, the interplay with plasma generation is crucial as it determines the time scale that, together with the dispersion landscape, shapes the SC spectrum.
