Abstract

The electric discharge triggered in air by intense femtosecond infrared laser pulses is analyzed and described. The discharge occurs under reduced applied voltage and follows the path of the self-guided laser pulse. The discharge initiation occurs during the relaxation of the electron density in the uniform plasma column, where the reduced gas density gives rise to a lower discharge threshold.
