Paper Abstract

A simulation code for analyzing laser matter interactions is described in the context of short pulse laser ablation of hard tissue. Some experimental results on short pulse laser absorption are presented and used to motivate employing such systems for ablating biological tissues. Results of simulations of hard tissue drilling are given, including hydrodynamic response and ablation efficiency.
