Paper Abstract

Research is being performed at several locations in consideration of learning the value of the front surface spallation process for tissue ablation. The experimental results are illustrating complicated features associated with the microscopic behavior of materials during the spallation process. This paper summarizes the current understanding of the spallation process in various materials and presents an interpretation of recent laser-tissue interaction experiments.
