Advances in the Physical Understanding of Laser Surgery at 6.45 Microns


We previously presented a model that attributes the wavelength-dependence of FEL tissue ablation to partitioning of absorbed energy between protein and saline. This energy-partitioning subsequently influences the competition between protein denaturation and saline vaporization. The original model approximated cornea as a laminar material with a 50:50 saline… (More)
