Abstract
The effect of astigmatism on laser air filamentation was studied numerically and experimentally. Limited supply of energy to the filament is shown to be the main feature of aberrational focusing, which facilitated the organization of quasi-solitons in the post-filament region. Quasi-solitons are realized due to the balance between linear diffraction and Kerr nonlinearity in the presence of background environment around zones with increased intensity. A highly directional SC of visible light is formed outside the visible filament zone in the resulting spatial quasi-solitons.
