Abstract

A model for the optical response of Xenon, including the nonlinear polarization and ionization rate, is calibrated with the help of space-and-time resolved measurements. Utilizing an idea of universal functional form for the response as a function of the field strength, we demonstrate agreement with several experiments spanning the intensity range relevant for applications in nonlinear optics at near-infrared and mid-infrared wavelengths.
