Paper Abstract

A time-resolved imaging technique to detect shock wave evolution during photofragmentation of hard biological tissues is presented. A theoretical model, previously developed for plasma physics, was successfully applied to fit experimental results providing useful information on the main parameters involved in the acoustic process.
