Noninvasive ultrafast imaging diagnostics in low-temperature plasmas Conference Paper uri icon


  • We demonstrate utilization of femtosecond-duration laser pulses for two-photonabsorption LIF imaging of atomic species in nonequilibrium plasmas. Femtosecond excitation enables improved signal-to-noise ratio, suppression of photolytic interferences, kilohertz-rate imaging, and potential for collisional quenching-free measurements. 2014 OSA.
