Paper Abstract

Laser drilling of the zona pellucida of the mammalian egg can be achieved using a continuous wave 1.48 micrometers diode laser because of high absorption coefficient of water at this wavelength. Effect of increase in temperature of the medium on the holes produced by the laser is studied. A threshold temperature is identified and its relation to the radial temperature field in the laser irradiated zona is discussed.
