Abstract

The supersonic propagation velocity of the emission front of plasma produced by laser-induced breakdown of a micrometer-sized transparent droplet flowing in a gas was measured with a streak camera at three intensity levels. At low input intensity, the plasma velocities in the gas away from and toward the shadow face were determined. At medium input intensity, the plasma velocities in the gas outside the shadow face and within the liquid (traveling toward the illuminated face) were measured. At high input intensity, the plasma velocities in the gas outside the shadow face, within the liquid, and in the gas outside the illuminated face were deduced.
