32 TW atmospheric white-light laser

Abstract

Ultrahigh power laser pulses delivered by the Alisé beamline (26J, 32TW pulses) have been sent vertically into the atmosphere. The highly nonlinear propagation of the beam in the air gives rise to more than 400 self-guided filaments. This extremely powerful bundle of laser filaments generates a supercontinuum propagating up to the stratosphere, beyond 20km. This constitutes the highest power “atmospheric white-light laser” to date.
