Lasing dynamics of neutral nitrogen molecules in femtosecond filaments

Abstract : We investigate the dynamics of cavity-free lasing from neutral nitrogen molecules in femtosecond laser filaments. An important difference of intensity and temporal duration is observed between backward and forward lasing, in both amplified spontaneous emission and seed-amplification regimes. Numerical simulations based on a nonadiabatic Maxwell-Bloch model reproduce well the observations, and attribute these differences to the finite gain lifetime and the traveling excitation nature of this gas laser.
