Sensitive detection of laser-ablation plumes in an optical build-up cavity Academic Article uri icon


  • Cavity-enhanced detection is used to monitor the dynamics of minute vapor plumes produced by focusing a pulsed laser beam onto a surface. The time evolution of the various processes, namely vaporization, acoustic wave generation and photothermal effect range from nsec to msec.
