Abstract

Series of time-resolved still images of the explosion dynamics of micrometer-sized water droplets after femtosecond laser-pulse irradiation were obtained for different laser-pulse intensities. Amplified pulses centered around a wavelength of 805 nm with 1-mJ energy and 60-fs duration were focused onto the droplet to initiate the dynamics. Several effects, such as forward and backward plumes, jets, water films, and shock waves, were investigated. Additionally, the influence of different pulse durations produced by chirping the laser pulses was observed.

Three-dimensional logarithmic diagram of relative intensity in the equatorial plane of the droplet (55-µm diameter and 1.329 refraction index). The laser comes from below on the left side. The calculation was performed by use of Mie theory. The equipotential lines in the three-dimensional plot indicate different intensity decades.
