Paper Abstract

Pulse-to-pulse kinetics of laser ablation of porcine cornea in vitro by a YAG:Er laser ((lambda) equals 2.94 micrometer) and by fifth harmonic of a YAP:Nd laser ((lambda) equals 216 nm) as well as preablation transformations of cataracted human lens in vitro irradiated by Glass:Er laser ((lambda) equals 1.54 micrometer) are followed by Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). In the latter case kinetics of tissue swelling is studied. Observation of tissue surface with temporal resolution better than pulse train duration by means of cw probe laser reveals evidences of outburst of 'dynamic' hump.
