Abstract

Discharged-ablated capillary waveguides were investigated based on electron-density profile using time-resolved interferometric measurements. A pronounced axial minimum with a relative depth of as much as 60% of the axial electron density was developed in the electron density profile. Results showed that this profile can be used for high-intensity laser pulse tunneling.
