Abstract

Background-free third-order harmonic generation is observed from dynamic gratings induced by dual laser filaments in argon gas. The filaments were generated by focusing two intense 60 fs laser pulses noncollinearly into a gas cell. The optimal result is achieved with gas pressure of 2 atm and zero relative delay. It seems that the off-axis third-harmonic generation is mainly due to the interaction between the two interfering fundamental pulses and their filaments.
