Paper Abstract

We have characterized laser-induced shock wave in water. Pressure measurements have been carried out using piezoelectric sensors and optical methods (interferometer, high-speed visualization). These experiments give us information on the pressure amplitude, the rise time, the pressure pulse duration, the energy, the shock wave velocity, and the pressure decay. These researches find applications in various fields such as: laser cleaning of sensitive surface, pressure probes calibration, medical treatments (intraocular surgery, lithotripsy).
