Abstract

By means of a quantitative shadowgraphic method, we performed a space–time characterization of the refractive index variation and transient absorption induced by a light–plasma filament generated by a 120 fs laser pulse in water. The formation and evolution of the plasma channel in the proximity of the nonlinear focus were observed with a 23 fs time resolution.
