Paper Abstract

Carbonization decreases the optical density in parts of the ultraviolet spectral range while the optical density is increased (up to a factor of 5) in the visible and near infrared spectral range. Optical changes after continuous wave Nd:YAG laser irradiation are inhomogeneously distributed within the irradiated vascular tissue.
