Abstract

Theoretical studies of filamentation of ultra-short near-IR laser pulses propagating in a noble gas predict near single-cycle pulses with the intensity being clamped to the field ionization threshold. Experimental results show that this method is carrier envelope offset phase preserving and provides a very simple source for generating few-cycle intense laser pulses. This suggests a very simple design for the generation of ultra-short, sub-femtosecond XUV optical pulses.
