Laser Filamentation as a New Phase Transition Universality Class

Published inPhysical review letters, vol. 114, no. 6, 063903
Publication date2015

We show that the onset of laser multiple filamentation can be described as a critical phenomenon that we characterize both experimentally and numerically by measuring a set of seven critical exponents. This phase transition deviates from any existing universality class and offers a unique perspective of conducting two-dimensional experiments of statistical physics at a human scale.
