Paper Abstract

In vitro ablation experiments of calf brain tissue using a picosecond Nd:YLF laser system are reported. The laser lesions were studied with special regard to the ablation rate and to possible injuries of tissue adjacent to the excisions. Histological examinations prove the excellent quality of the lesions, showing no signs of thermal damages or carbonization. Furthermore, the influence of higher photon energies on the ablation threshold was studied.
