Supercontinuum generation with optical vortices

Dreischuh, Alexander; Maleshkov, Georgi; Samoc, Marec; Kivshar, Yuri; Neshev, Dragomir


We employ an optical vortex beam for the generation of femtosecond supercontinuum in a solid state medium. We demonstrate that the continuum generation process is initiated by the filamentation of the vortex, resulting in a spatially divergent continuum. Despite the strong self-focusing and the formation of multiple hot-spots along the vortex ring, the singularity is preserved in both the near- and far-fields.
