Abstract

Electrostrictive distortions of a flowing water droplet are photographed with a framing camera after the laser pulse is shut off. With medium-energy laser illumination, large asymmetric bulging from the droplet shadow face precedes shape oscillation of the entire droplet. With high-energy laser illumination, the bulge acquires a cylindrical shape that can eject a small droplet. The laser-induced electrostrictive force exerted on a single transparent droplet is compared with the surface-tension force.

Figures (2)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Framing camera photographs of laser-irradiated water droplets (a ≈ 50 μm) recorded at various time delays Δt after the dye-laser pulse (100 mJ, 400-nsec duration). Although photographs were taken every microsecond, the successive photographs shown correspond to every 2 μsec. The top photograph in the left-hand column is for Δt = 0, and the bottom photograph in the right-hand column is for Δt = 22 μsec. The laser direction is from left to right.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Same as in Fig. 1, except that the dye-laser pulse energy is increased to 200 mJ. The top photograph in the left-hand column is for Δt = 1 μsec, and the bottom photograph in the right-hand column is for Δt = 15 μsec.
