Bennink, RS; Wong, V; Marino, AM; Aronstein, DL; Boyd, RW; Stroud, CR; Lukishova, S; Gauthier, DJ, Honeycomb pattern formation by laser-beam filamentation in atomic sodium vapor, Physical Review Letters, vol. 88 no. 11 (March, 2002), pp. 29-(Highlighted on the cover of Phys. Rev. Lett., selected to appear in "Optics 2002".) [Gateway.cgi], [doi] .

    Optical pattern formation was discussed. A single laser beam propagating without feedback through atomic sodium vapor develops a stable, regular, transverse structure was used. It was found that a three-filament near-field pattern leading to a honeycomb far-field pattern occurs at intensities near the saturation intensity.
