Paper Abstract

Transverse effects on the profile of an intense off-resonant cw light beam, propagating through a gazeous cell of length ℓ, are numerically displayed in both cases of the very small absorption length (α-1 « ℓ ) and the intermediate case (α-1 ~ ℓ). As predicted by the theory, self-focusing and spatial ringings are obtained. Moreover for αℓ ~ 1, these distorsions generally appear as a recurrent process.
