PURPOSE To assess the ability of a newly developed 193 nm solid-state laser to ablate the cornea. SETTING Osaka University, Osaka, Japan. METHODS A prototype laser engine was developed by combining a 1547 nm laser diode, fiber amplifiers, and 5 stages of a frequency-conversion system using CsLiB6O10 crystals as the last stage.
