Abstract

The results of experimental studies of femtosecond laser pulse filamentation in water are described. The dependencies of the number of filaments, spectrum width, distance of nonlinear focusing, and diameter of filamentation zone on the laser pulse power are measured. Existence of a segment on the scale of relative power is marked out, where the number of filaments increases dramatically.
