Abstract

We have used time-resolved imaging to examine the effect of incident radiation wavelength in the range 2.75-3.75 μm on the shattering of water microdroplets by single and dual lasers. Dye sensitization of microdroplets was induced by using the water-soluble dye sulforhodamine G; this enabled us to observe both the forward and backward components of fragmented droplets and splashes. Compared with employing a single IR laser, simultaneous illumination by two IR lasers can effectively compress the spatial distribution of small fragments around the absorption maximum for the OH-stretching vibration of liquid water (y=2.75-3.25 μm). Scattering and compression of the fragmented microdroplets after single and dual IR laser irradiation can be explained by conservation of momentum.
