We report the generation of shock waves in a disperse medium with absorbing particles of black pigment in the water using continuous laser radiation. As a result of the experimental investigation it was found that the illuminating beam diameter growth at the constant laser power results in the decrease of the signals' modulation frequencies, improving their… CONTINUE READING
