Paper Abstract

Ultrashort laser pulse tissue ablation has demonstrated advantages of greatly reduced required energy and collateral damage. These advantages stem directly from the fact that laser energy is absorbed nonlinearly in a time too short for significant thermal and hydrodynamic response. The high peak power and short pulse duration both have implications for practical fiber delivery systems.
