Alternate Title

Femto Laser Pulse Propagation Property in Air

Abstract

Propagation properties of femtosecond laser pulses in air were investigated with 10fs optical pulses from a Ti:sapphire oscillator and 100fs optical pulses from a Ti:sapphire amplifier, respectively. For the 10fs pulse, the dispersion in the air has a severe effect on the pulse duration due to the broad bandwidth while the 100fs pulse duration does not undergo significant change over its 100 meter propagation in the air.
