Abstract

The monomode guided propagation of a short (500-fs) laser pulse is studied for an incident intensity in the range 10<sup>13</sup>–3×10<sup>18</sup> W/cm<sup>2</sup> inside a glass-walled capillary tube (length, ≈1 cm; inner radius, 15 μm). The measured transmission is constant over a large range of incident intensities (10<sup>13</sup>–10<sup>16</sup> W/cm<sup>2</sup>) and corresponds, except for a coupling constant, to the value predicted by an analytical model for monomode guiding. For incident intensities larger than 10<sup>17</sup> W/cm<sup>2</sup>, a drop in transmission is observed, which is attributed to plasma creation at the entrance plane of the capillary tube.
