Abstract

We investigate the linear propagation of 800 and 1530 nm ultrashort optical pulses in water. For all pulse repetition rates studied, we observe pure exponential decay down to a transmission of 2.5 × 10 5 . We further demonstrate that previous observations of nonmonoexponential decay and pulse splitup in broadband pulses are consistent with Beer’s law in the purely linear regime.
