BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE One concern during laser ablation of tissue is the mechanical injury that may be induced in tissue in the vicinity of the ablation site. This injury is primarily due to rapid bubble expansion and collapse or due to laser-induced pressure waves. In this study, the effect of laser pulse duration on the thermodynamics of bubble formation and accompanying acoustic pressure wave generation has been investigated.
