Abstract:

Using the interferometric method, the authors have explained the distribution of the electron density of two colliding laser plasmas obtained upon the action of the radiation of a powerful laser on two particulates suspended in a vacuum. For objects of the laser plasma type, they determined the optimum number of breakdown zones and showed that the optimum number of zones was one order of magnitude less than when processing interferograms using the familiar trapezoid method.
