Spatially-correlated microthermography maps threshold temperature in laser-induced damage
We measured threshold temperatures for cell death resulting from short (0.1 – 1.0 s) 514-nm laser exposures using an in vitro retinal model. Real-time thermal imaging at sub-cellular resolutionExpand

In vitro model that approximates retinal damage threshold trends.
Without effective in vitro damage models, advances in our understanding of the physics and biology of laser-tissue interaction would be hampered due to cost and ethical limitations placed on the useExpand

Mathematical model that describes the transition from thermal to photochemical damage in retinal pigment epithelial cell culture.
We propose a rate process model for describing photochemical damage to retinal cells by short wavelength laser exposures. The rate equation for photochemical damage contains a positive rate that isExpand

Determination of threshold average temperature for cell death in an in vitro retinal model using thermography
Even though laser exposures of 1 s or less are non-isothermal events, researchers have had to rely upon the isothermal treatise of Arrhenius to describe the laser damage rate processes. To fullyExpand

Thermal evaluation of laser exposures in an in vitro retinal model by microthermal sensing
Abstract. A temperature detection system using a micropipette thermocouple sensor was developed for use within mammalian cells during laser exposure with an 8.6-μm beam at 532 nm. We haveExpand

Assessment of tissue heating under tunable near-infrared radiation
Abstract. The time-temperature effects of laser radiation exposure are investigated as a function of wavelength. Here, we report the thermal response of bulk tissue as a function of wavelength fromExpand

Monitoring stimulated Raman scattering with photoacoustic detection.
A capability of high-frequency ultrasound detection to monitor the process of energy deposition into a molecular system via Raman excitation is experimentally demonstrated. It is shown that theExpand
