Spatial measurements of the emission spectra of a laser-generated plasma were obtained for copper and lead targets. Results showed that the two metals gave quite different sizes of plasma, the plasma formed with copper extending 2 mm, and that with lead extending 5 mm, above the metal surface. Excitation temperatures of the plasma ranged from 13,200 to 17,200 K for copper and 11,700 to 15,300 K for lead.
