Abstract

Measurements of the spatio-temporal and far-field profiles of ultrashort laser pulses experiencing conical emission, continuum generation, and beam filamentation in a Kerr medium outline the spontaneous formation of wave packets with X-like features, thus supporting recent numerical results [M. Kołesik, E. Wright, and J. Moloney, Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, 253901 (2004)]. Numerical simulations show good agreement with experimental data.
