Abstract

We propose a new technique for high-energy conical pulse generation based on continuum seeded parametric amplification process in quadratic nonlinear media. We show that by using an appropriate broadband week seed we are able to lock the many spatiotemporal modes of the parametric radiation to obtain a single, coherent conical pulse.
