Optical Breakdown on the Inclined Target: The Features of the Erosive Plume Formation
For oblique incidence of laser radiation on the target, the breakdown of air and erosive jet are separated in time and space. The electron density is higher in the air breakdown area while Al I density is higher in an erosive plume area. We also defined plasma expansion mechanism and estimate the time of erosive plume formation.
