Paper Abstract

In present paper we introduce a new model of interaction of laser radiation and dielectric medium. The model correctly describes the dispersion of third order nonlinear medium polarization response in a wide spectral range and is suitable for analysis of propagation of intensive extremely short laser pulses with a very wide spectrum. Also we include into this model a description of plasma-related effects, which are noticed when intensity of pulses increases high enough to initiate free electron generation process. A new wave equation, describing wide-spectrum femtosecond pulse propagation in nonlinear medium with induced plasma nonlinearity, is obtained.
