Streak camera investigation of the self‐focusing onset in glass
1.A preliminary description of these results was presented by us (talk H.4) at the International Quantum Electronics Conference, San Francisco, June, 1974 (unpublished).
2.Related interference effects associated with spatially dependent self‐phase‐modulation have been observed in thermal blooming experiments. See, for example, F. W. Dabby, T. K. Gustafson, J. R. Whinnery, Y. Kohanzadeh, and P. L. Kelley [Appl. Phys. Lett. 16, 362 (1970)].
3.Recent review articles include S. A. Akhmanov, R. V. Khokhlov, and A. P. Sukhorukov, in Laser Handbook, edited by F. T. Arecchi and E. O. Schultz‐Dubois (North‐Holland, Amsterdam, 1972), p. 1151; also articles by J. Marburger and by Y. R. Shen, Progress in Quantum Optics (Pergamon, New York, to be published).

6.A further reduction in the focal spot intensity may be due to the growth of spatial instabilities. Here also, at intensities well below the level at which catastrophic small‐scale self‐focusing occurs, E. S. Bliss (private communication) has suggested that the instabilities have sufficient amplitude to scatter a significant fraction of the beam energy elsewhere in the focal plane.
