Abstract
Studies on some laser interactions to fluid materials are presented. Firstly, pulsed-laser-induced cavitation bubble in liquid nitrogen is investigated by YAG laser irradiation. High speed schlieren photographs by Imacon-790 are taken to observe the laser-induced bubble dynamics. Bubble and solid wall interactions are also investigated. Based on the results obtained, a novel laser surface processing technology using the pulse-laser-induced cavitation bubbles is secondly proposed. Furthermore, discussing by the fundamental results of the experiment of laser-gas molecular absorption, the possibility of decomposition of environmental gases by CW CO2 laser irradiation is also studied.
