Paper Abstract

Propagation of an intense femtosecond light pulses is investigated by a numerical model which provides the full spatial and temporal description. This is a simulation of pump and probe experiment where the probe pulse is affected by the presence of the pump pulse. Deviation of the plane-wave approximation and its correction to Gaussian beams is studied under variation of several sample parameters. The results give a view to some limitations of use of the approximation.
