This paper presents the analytical development and numerical simulation of a scaling law for accurately forecasting the self-focusing threshold in normally dispersive media, without any arbitrary factors, which also correlates to the threshold for effects in bulk media, like supercontinuum generation, which are dependent on the intensity. The scaling law also helps understand pulse propagation dynamics such as spectral broadening.
