Abstract

We present numerical studies of nonlinear propagation for picosecond pulses focused in water. Depending on the pulse duration and focusing conditions, for some input powers self-focusing may precede laser-induced breakdown and vice versa. We derive a criterion that predicts the relative roles of laser-induced breakdown and self-focusing.
