Paper Abstract

Some aspects of the propagation of femtosecond laser pulses in transparent, dispersive, nonlinear media are reviewed. Since the details of pulse propagation depend critically on the experimental conditions we only will briefly consider a general case of a femtosecond wavepacket evolution and then apply it to specific problems. Theoretical and experimental results for wavepacket distortion by lenses and wavepacket distortion in birefringent media will be presented. Splitting of femtosecond wavepackets in dispersive Kerr media will be also discussed.
