Abstract

We investigate the emission of terahertz (THz) radiation from two laser filaments in air. An increase by 1 order of magnitude of the overall THz power is found when the two filaments are coherently linked on-axis, leading to a single longer concatenated filament. The observed enhancement is found to be the same for the cases of single-color and two-color filamentation atraroaches.
