Paper Abstract

Since it is difficult to measure the temperature in the small focused area of the laser-irradiated zona pellucida, we have developed a model to characterize the temperature field associated with this process which uses optical properties of water and measured beam profiles. In this presentation, we use this model to examine the temperature field for laser irradiation conditions which result in a given hole size.
