Abstract : The results of experimental observation of the dynamic explosive process obtained by focusing a ruby laser beam into water are presented. The development of the vapor-gas cavity and the shock-acoustic waves are described as obtained by the shadow and half-shadow method with the aid of highspeed photography. The shock waves were at the same time recorded piezoelectrically. (Author)
