Abstract

A new diagnostic technique provides temporally and spatially resolved information at two settable wavelengths within the plasma-emission profile of a single transparent water droplet (40 μm in radius and containing 4 M NaCl) irradiated by a high-intensity laser beam. Data from this technique are compared with those from conventional techniques that separately provide time-averaged spatially resolved spectra or spatially averaged temporally resolved spectra of the plasma emission from droplets.
