The generation and control of large amplitude plasma grating and other plasma structures is of paramount importance for the realization of plasma photonics. Autoresonant excitation of such structures by means of chirped amplitude-modulated laser has been recently discussed and analyzed theoretically. Here we discuss the parameter space for the realization of such a scheme and describe the laser system that was built towards this goal. We also expand our earlier theoretical study, to account for the more realistic case of a moderately focused laser beam, instead of the simplified plane wave approximation.
