Demonstration of the Bessel-X pulse propagating with strong lateral and longitudinal localization in a dispersive medium.


We report experiments on ultrashort pulses that maintain their strong lateral and longitudinal localization in a bulk linear highly dispersive medium. The diameter of the central peak and the temporal width of the field autocorrelation function of the pulses were 20mum and 210 fs, respectively, and the spatiotemporal structure was preserved in the course of 7-cm propagation in the sample. The pulses were obtained with a computer hologram designed for generating the Bessel beam and can be applied in femtosecond laser optics.
