Paper Abstract

There are a number of industrial applications of laser ablation in a gas atmosphere. When an intense pulsed laser beam is irradiated on a solid surface in the gas atmosphere, the surface material is ablated and expands into the atmosphere. At the same time, a spherical shock wave is launched by the ablation jet to induce the unsteady flow around the target surface. The ablated materials, luminously working as tracer, exhibit strange unsteady motions depending on the experimental conditions. By using a high-speed video camera (HPV-X2), unsteady motion ablated materials are visualized at the frame rate more than 106 fps, and qualitatively characterized.
