Abstract

We demonstrate propagation of ultrafast laser pulses through a molecular gas acting as a transient wave plate under conditions of strong phase modulation. The resulting decomposition of a linearly polarized laser pulse into two nearly distinct, orthogonally polarized laser pulses is demonstrated with transiently aligned, linear molecules.
