Spectral studies of optical emission from plumes produced via ablation of the surface of stainless steel in the phase explosion regime at different incident fluences by a pair of collinear degenerate femtosecond laser pulses, separated by variable delay time of 0.01–1.5 ns, demonstrate a drastic decrease in atomic emission intensities in a subnanosecond range. This effect was related to “bulk” absorption of the second pump pulse in ablative plumes with near-critical density, achieved during their hydrodynamic expansion on a subnanosecond timescale.
