Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) and two-dimensional laser-induced fluorescence were used for measurement of the fluorescence lifetime of the A1Σ+ state of BaO molecules in the laser-ablation process of BaTiO3 and YBa2Cu3O7–x in the oxygen background gas. The zero-pressure lifetime and the quenching rate were also determined as τ0=357ns and k=5.1 × 10-6ns-1mTorr-1 , respectively. The spatiotemporal changes of the collisional quenching of BaO molecules were successfully visualized, and the influence of the quenching on the spatial distribution imaging of BaO molecule was corrected.
