Trapping and destruction of long-range high-intensity optical filaments by molecular quantum wakes in air

Trapping and destruction of long-range high-intensity optical filaments by molecular quantum wakes in air

Physical Review Letters 101(20): 205001

We report the first observation of the strong effect of quantum rotational wave packets in atmospheric air on the long-range filamentary propagation of intense femtosecond laser pulses. In a pump-probe experiment, we find that the probe filament can be sucked into the pump filament's molecular quantum wake and trapped or be destroyed by it.
