Phase transitions in self-organized systems: From laser multiple filamentation to peatlandsW. Ettoumi, D. Mongin, C. Bguin, E. Schubert, N. Berti, M. Brunetti, J.-P.Wolf, and J. Kasparian

We evidence phase transitions in multiple filamentation patterns, from percolating to non-percolating patterns, and from densely-packed (”solid”) to sparse (”gaseous”) filaments. The generality of this behavior is highlighted by analogies with peatland structuring.
