Evolution of Laser Light Induced Sodium Clusters
Languages of publication
We investigated the growing sodium clusters, induced by the laser light resonant with a sodium dimer transition. We observed the intensity of light scattered by clusters. The clusters were produced in the stainless steel cell containing sodium vapor and helium. We obtained data on cluster mean size and dynamics from fitting the theoretical formulas to the experimental data. The model of clusters' evolution basing on the thermodynamics of the vapor-liquid transition was applied.
