Paper Abstract

Optical coherent techniques, inteferometry and microscopy are applied for visualization of phenomena associated with laser-based lithotripsy. Shadowgraphy and ballistic imaging is used to visualize the phenomena generated around a stone during the action of a laser pulse. Results are confirmed using optical and electron microscopy.
