The use of 1 nanojoule near infrared 80 MHz femtosecond laser pulses for highly precise intratissue processing, in particular for intraocular refractive surgery, was evaluated. Destructive optical breakdown at TW/cm2 light intensities in a subfemtoliter intrastromal volume was obtained by diffraction-limited focussing with an 40x objective (N.A. 1.3) and beam scanning 50 to 140 microm below the epithelial surface. Using the same system at GW/cm2 intensities two-photon excited autofluorescence… CONTINUE READING
