Paper Abstract

Ultrabroadening of spatial spectrum of a self-focusing monochromatic optical wave in a medium with cubic nonlinearity is considered. The formation of optical beams with cross section on the order of a wavelength is considered. Backward self-reflection phenomenon is found to be the fundamental cause for the limitation of nonparaxial self-focusing.
