Paper Abstract

A pico-second single pulse which was extracted from a mode-locked dye laser was used for the background illumination for shadow and Schlieren photography of objects in laser-plasma experiments. Shock front propagation in transparent solid targets and blast wave propagation in the background gas, both of them being generated by 5ns/5J Nd-glass laser pulse, were photographically studied. The system had a temporal resolution of 5ps and a spatial resolution of 5μm.
