Forward THz radiation emission by femtosecond filamentation in gases: theory and experiment

Abstract : A transition–Cherenkov electromagnetic emission by a femtosecond laser pulse propagating in a self-induced plasma channel in air has been very recently proposed as mechanism for production of terahertz (THz) radiation in the forward direction. In this paper, we study in detail the theory of the transition–Cherenkov process. The theoretical model is developed and compared with recent experimental results for several gases.
