Abstract
We compare numerical simulations of bubble dynamics in water with experiments performed at the Medizineisches Laserzentrum Lubeck. Spatial and temporal features of the laser beam were modeled. Plasma growth was predicted using a moving breakdown model. We compare the measured and calculated positions of the shock front and the bubble wall as a function of time after optical breakdown in water. Nd:YAG laser pulses of 30-ps 1-mJ and 6-ns 10-mJ were simulated. We have extended previous work in which picosecond deposition was modeled at temporally instantaneous and spatially uniform.
