In this work the laser induced plasma obtained in air at atmospheric pressure by the interaction of a fs (femtosecond) or a ns (nanosecond) laser pulse with a metallic titanium target has been investigated by optical emission spectroscopy. The temporal evolution of plasma parameters such as electron number density and excitation temperature has been determined in order to highlight the processes involved when the emission spectra are acquired at short time delays from the ablating laser pulse. A survey of elementary processes implicated during plasma formation and expansion of ns- and fs-Laser Induced Plasma has been performed. Departures from equilibrium conditions are even discussed. The dynamic aspects corresponding to ns- and fs-LIP have been investigated by optical time of flight (TOF) and by fast emission imaging.

Abstract

In this work the laser induced plasma obtained in air at atmospheric pressure by the interaction of a fs (femtosecond) or a ns (nanosecond) laser pulse with a metallic titanium target has been investigated by optical emission spectroscopy. The temporal evolution of plasma parameters such as electron number density and excitation temperature has been determined in order to highlight the processes involved when the emission spectra are acquired at short time delays from the ablating laser pulse. A survey of elementary processes implicated during plasma formation and expansion of ns- and fs-Laser Induced Plasma has been performed. Departures from equilibrium conditions are even discussed. The dynamic aspects corresponding to ns- and fs-LIP have been investigated by optical time of flight (TOF) and by fast emission imaging. The overall results have been used for clarifying the basic mechanisms occurring during plasma expansion due to either ns or fs laser source when experimental conditions usually used for laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) applications are employed.
