A Study of the Optical and Acoustic Spectral Characteristics by Laser Breakdown of Water in an Ultrasonic Field
- 9 Downloads
A strong dependence of the optical breakdown in a liquid in the ultrasonic field on the amplitude and frequency of ultrasound is demonstrated. The increase in the intensity of spectral lines of potassium and oxygen during the optical breakdown is detected by the increase in the amplitude and frequency of ultrasound. At the same time, the effect of saturation is observed at high frequencies (above 200 kHz) and for high ultrasonic powers, when the growth in the intensity of spectral lines slows sharply down. This shows that there is no necessity to use high powers and frequencies of ultrasound to study the opto-acoustic effects during optical breakdown in a liquid.
