Abstract
Experiments and calculations indicate that the threshold pressure in spatial filters for distortion of a transmitted pulse scales approximately as I-0.2 and (F#)2 over the intensity range from 1014 to 2 X 1015 W/cm2. We also demonstrated an interferometric diagnostic that will be used to measure the scaling relationships governing pinhole closure in spatial filters.
