Title: Time-evolution and guiding regimes of the laser-produced plasma waveguide

Abstract

A brief review of experiments investigating the hydrodynamics and linear optical properties of laser-produced plasma fibers is presented. Time- and space-resolved interferometry measurements yield plasma density profiles, expansion speeds and temperature estimates, and the physical mechanisms behind their evolution are discussed. Based on the measured profiles and the results of guiding experiments, two distinct optical guiding and coupling regimes are identified. (c) 2000 American Institute of Physics.
