Abstract

We show that spatiotemporal light bullets generated by self-focusing and filamentation of 100 fs, 1.8 μm pulses in a dielectric medium with anomalous group velocity dispersion (sapphire) are extremely robust to external perturbations. We present the experimental results supported by the numerical simulations that demonstrate complete spatiotemporal self-reconstruction of the light bullet after hitting an obstacle, which blocks its intense core carrying the self-compressed pulse, in nonlinear as well as in linear (free-space) propagation regimes.

Fig. 2 Measured spatiotemporal cross-correlation functions of (a) the input Gaussian wave packet and the light bullet at the output face of (b) z = 9 mm and (c) z = 15 mm long sapphire samples. (d) shows the spatiotemporal cross-correlation function of the light bullet, which was formed after z = 9 mm propagation in the first sapphire sample, passed the 0.8 mm air gap and propagated another 6 mm in the second sapphire sample. Note the logarithmic intensity scale.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 FWHM diameter and pulsewidth of the central core as functions of propagation distance: solid curves – unperturbed light bullet, dashed curves – self-reconstructed light bullet. z1 and z2 denote the propagation lengths in the first and in the second sapphire sample, respectively. Inset shows an electronic microscope image of the beam stopper that blocked the central core at the output of the first sapphire crystal.

Fig. 4 Self-reconstruction of the light bullet. The spatiotemporal cross-correlation functions: (a) at the output face of the first sapphire sample (z1 = 9 mm), (b) at the input face of the second sapphire sample (z2 = 0 mm), and after propagation of (c) z2 = 3 mm and (d) z2 = 6 mm in the second sapphire sample.

Fig. 5 Free space propagation of unperturbed (top-row) and self-reconstructed (bottom row) light bullet. z denotes the propagation distance in air.
Fig. 6
Fig. 6 Results of the numerical simulations. Top row – spatiotemporal intensity profiles of (a) light bullet at the output face of 9 mm long first sapphire sample, (b) blocked bullet, and self-reconstructed bullet after propagation (c) of 6 mm in a second sapphire sample, (d) of 3.5 mm in air. Middle row – spatiotemporal intensity profiles of the light bullet after reduction of spectral and angular extent (see text for details). Bottom row – corresponding cross-correlation functions generated with 25-fs gating pulse.
