Laser filamentation

Atoms and molecules exposed to a non-resonant intense (10-100 TW/cm²) laser field exhibit highly nonlinear dynamics that has motivated a wealth of experimental and theoretical studies and led to the observation of phenomena such as above-threshold ionization (ATI), high-harmonics generation (HHG), attosecond pulses generation, or filamentation. Our current activity is devoted to the study of such highly nonlinear phenomena from both experimental and theoretical point of views.
