    When a short-pulse laser beam is focused onto a solid target in a few torr ambient gas, the expanding target plasma couples to the resulting ambient plasma. Dark-field shadowgrams show that a thin, nearly spherical blast front is produced. These shadowgrams also show that certain regions of the...

    A theoretical investigation is made of the modulational and filamentation instabilities of laser radiation at the upper-hybrid frequency in the presence of the self-generated magnetic field of the order of a few megagauss in a laser-produced plasma. The nonlinear Vlasov equation is solved to...

    Analysis of the phase-matching integral for third-harmonic generation in focused laser beams shows that this process can be used as a method of 3D microscopy, allowing one to characterize the location and magnitude of inhomogeneities of linear and nonlinear optical characteristics of a medium....
