Paper Abstract

Two types of scattering of the laser radiation arising when an intense (1014 - 1016 W/cm2) subpicosecond ionizing pulse propagates in an atmospheric-density gas are considered: the stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) of the laser pulse by the electron plasma wave and the scattering as a result of the spatio-temporal instability in the self-produced plasma. The contributions of the spatio-temporal instability and the SRS to the laser pulse spectrum are compared.
