Abstract

The paper reports on the use of time-resolved beam deflection technique to the study of the laser generated plume propagation (vaporized material) in gas ambient. The technique is a sensitive means which is quick to respond to the density change. When the corresponding points in the deflection signals at various distances from the target are collected. The velocity distribution of the laser generated plume can be calculated. A model is proposed to describe the plume propagation.
