The experimental and theoretical results in this letter reveal that three-photon absorption effect can help light wave to form solitonlike filament; and a stable solitonlike filament is observed in solution with high quintic nonlinearity. This stable solitonlike filament makes pumping infrared laser be localized within the filament and reach high pumping density for a long distance. This high density pumping laser in the filament generates high efficiency lasing induced by three-photon absorption. This work is an approach to make practical application of high order nonlinear optical processes possible.
