Paper Abstract

We have previously demonstrated that retinal damage thresholds can vary as a function of ultrashort laser pulse chirp. Computations and in-vivo experiments have both demonstrated such results. Here, we present a study of the computation of damage thresholds as functions of laser wavelength, pulse duration, and chirp. Damage threshold trends are explored and related to current and future laser safety exposure limits.
