Abstract

Using high numerical focusing and pulse energies close above threshold for optical breakdown, disruptive effects can be generated in a range below the diffraction limit. This effect can be used to cut tissue with a precision at the cellular level. This kind of cell surgery offers a new field of experimental investigations in cell biology.
