Acoustic signals generated in water by terawatt (TW) laser pulses undergoing filamentation are studied. The acoustic signal has a very broad spectrum, spanning from 0.1 to 10 MHz and is confined in the plane perpendicular to the laser direction. Such a source appears to be promising for the development of remote laser based acoustic applications.
