Abstract

We numerically demonstrated the filamentation dynamics of a 6 fs, 800 nm pulse focused in argon at atmospheric pressure by a zone plate and a concave mirror. In comparison with a concave mirror, the zone plate has a frequency-dependent focal length and can be used to control the wavefront of the laser beam in the frequency domain. A separate supercontinuum in the ultraviolet region extending from 250 to 300 nm and peaked at 280   nm can be generated by using a proper zone plate.
