Abstract

A wave optical calculation is made of the distortion of a micrometer-sized water droplet illuminated by a short laser pulse (duration, 0.4 µs). First we find electromagnetic surface forces, assuming that the surface is at rest; thereafter we find the distortion by using the linearized Navier–Stokes equation. We illustrate the motion as a function of time, up to 22 µs after passage of the pulse. This study generalizes the earlier one of Lai [J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 6, 2430 (1989)] to the case of linear polarization and is in reasonable agreement with the experiment of ZhangChang [Opt. Lett. 13, 916 (1988)].
