Generation of acoustic waves by focused infrared neodymium-laser radiation

When the radiat Ion from a sufficient Iy powerful pulsed laser Is focused into transparent gaseous, liquid or solid media, dielectric breakdown may occur around the beam waist giving rise to a shortI ived high-temperature plasma which quickly heats the surrounding material. As a consequence of vario...
