Paper Abstract

In this paper, we report observation of average control of laser beam self-focusing in submillimeter liquid fiber, and the largest spectral broadening of the pump laser line originated mainly from the central self-trapped filament. The intensity-dependent frequency shift was revealed by the time-resolved study, and a laser-induced molecular structural change was proposed. Altering the experimental arrangements we can choose one or two of the different nonlinear processes to dominate in our fiber setup.
