Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) in liquids using a double-pulse Q-switched Nd:YAG laser system has provided reliable results that give trace detection limits in water. Resonant laser excitation has been added to enhance detection sensitivity. A primary laser pulse (at 532 nm), transmitted via an optical fiber, induces a cavitation bubble and(More)
We have developed a small scale shock tube of 1mm diameter which has a diaphragm-less driver section. The experiment is performed by using our small scale shock tube, where the propagation velocities of the shock waves are measured with a specially designed laser interferometer under several pressure conditions. Helium and CO2 are used as the driver and(More)
