Abstract

The propagation of intense femtosecond pulses in a nonlinear, dispersive medium is characterized using frequency-resolved optical gating. The combined effects of diffraction, normal dispersion and cubic nonlinearity lead to pulse splitting. The role of the phase of the input pulse is studied. The results are compared with the predictions of a three-dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger equation.
