Abstract

Spectroscopy is performed on the plume created by a high-power short-pulse laser on a solid surface. It is shown that high resolution (<10pm) and accurate spectral analysis can be performed using a self-absorption feature appearing within the emission lines. The time-dependent self-absorption study reveals dynamics of a shock wave.
