摘要

We present the experimental and numerical investigations of high-energy mid-infrared filamentation with multi-octave-spanning supercontinuum generation (SCG), pumped by a 2.4 μm, 250 fs Cr:ZnSe chirped-pulse laser amplifier. The SCG is demonstrated in both anomalous and normal dispersion regimes with YAG and polycrystalline ZnSe, respectively. The formation of stable and robust filaments along with the visible-to-mid-infrared SCG is obtained with a pump energy of up to 100 µJ in a 6-mm-long YAG medium. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest-energy multi-octave-spanning SCG from a laser filament in a solid. On the other hand, the SCG and even-harmonic generation based on random quasi-phase matching (RQPM) are simultaneously observed from the single filaments in a 6-mm-long polycrystalline ZnSe medium with a pump energy of up to 15 µJ. The numerical simulations based on unidirectional pulse propagation equation and RQPM show good agreement with the measured multi-octave-spanning SCG and even-harmonic generation. They also reveal the temporal structure of mid-IR filaments, such as soliton-like self-compression in YAG and pulse broadening in ZnSe.
