Paper Abstract

Pulse compression through filamentation in a free-space argon gas-filled cell has been demonstrated by use of the high energy laser pulse. Compression and splitting of the optical laser pulse due to multiple filamentation in an argon gas-filled cell were observed. A 130-fs pulse was compressed to less than 60 fs (full width at half-maximum) with the output energy of 16 mJ at the argon gas pressure of 25 kPa.
