Mechanisms of Laser Ablation of Biological Tissue

Conference paper
Part of the Springer Series in Surface Sciences book series (SSSUR, volume 19)


The application of laser ablation for tissue removal - mostly in the UV-regime - has recently stimulated considerable experimental efforts among research groups. Beyond this, clinical applications of laser ablation have already been reported. An understanding of the desorption and ablation mechanisms and potential side effects of the radiation is, however, still in at the infant stage, but indispensable for a useful and responsible application.
