Abstract

Filamentation in the anomalous dispersion regime is experimentally shown to give rise to an extreme blueshifted continuum peak in the visible region even when the filament is formed by near-infrared pulses. Measurements and numerical simulations allow us to identify this peak as an axial component of the conical emission. Its features are characterized and quantitatively reproduced by the effective three-wave mixing model. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.87.043820
