Figure 8. Presentation to the variation of the measured

electron temperature with delay time utilizing Mg I, II lines

after correcting spectral intensities against effect of self

absorption (lower open circles), without correction (upper

solid circles) and from the Al II ionic spectral line intensi-

ties (red solid triangles).
