INRS researchers have pushed the boundaries of high-energy laser pulse propagation, with reliance on the observation of high-energy multidimensional solitary states (MDSS), allowing the direct generation of extremely short and intense laser pulses that are highly stable in time and space.
Typical laser systems restrict their operation to a single transverse mode, which puts an upper limit on laser technology. Higher dimensions have so far been considered detrimental, as they are prone to instability and collapse.
INRS researchers at the Advanced Laser Light Source facility were able to observe high-energy multidimensional solitary states that enable the direct generation of extremely short and intense laser pulses that are highly…
