Abstract

The propagation and split of the filamentation of femtosecond pulses in air have been paid much attention since last a few years. However, most research works are performed with few considerations of the turbulence effects of atmosphere due to the difficulties of utilizing analytical solutions and experiment conditions. In this work, we will attempt to introduce a kind of numerical simulation method to analyze the transmission features of femtosecond laser pulses in air or in the turbulent air, namely, it is called multi-phase screen method (MPSM) which use phase screen to simulate atmospheric turbulence. In this presentation, the main laser parameters are as follows: 85 fs pulse-width, 0.8cm radius of the beam, the two kinds of 160GW and 1.0 TW peak-power operating at 800 nm. Then utilizing the structure of Vortex soliton to control the filamentation is proposed. In our cases, four Gaussian pulses with a difference of p/2 in the phase of each adjacent beam as a ring to control the filamentation by utilizing its characteristics of the vortex soliton. Some results show that the coupling and interaction among four Gaussian pulses cause the rotational transfer of the energy of the four beams. Finally, we obtain the transmission features of the beams propagating in the turbulent air with different intensities by the MPSM.
