Spectroscopic Analysis of Copper Oxide by Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy in the Presence and Absence of a Magnetic Field
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy of CuO plasma in the presence and absence of magnetic field has been investigated. The plasma was generated by employing Nd: YAG laser (532 nm, 9 ns) at various pulse laser energy ranging from 100 to 400 mj in a vacuum. The increasing of pulse laser energy in the presence and absence of the magnetic field had shown increasing in electron density while the electron temperature was decreases. The presence of the magnetic field cause to a rising the electron density but it reduces the electron temperature comparison with the case of absence of the magnetic field. According to theβ value distribution along the target, the results shows in the central region of the target the plasma plump that produced by laser is in a good confinement in this region in contrasted with edge region of the target region.
