RSVP: not required


Lasers heat things up. ? Modifying materials with lasers frequently (though not always) involves a thermal interaction produced through linear absorption. ? High peak power and ultrashort pulsed lasers are different.? They can produce non-linear effects, which may be used to affect materials in a minimally or even non-thermal way. ? The unique interactions associated with ultrashort pulsed lasers enable medical therapies and techniques that are unique.

I will review the basics of ultrashort pulse laser material interactions, describe the application of these interactions to biological tissues and materials, and will present a few examples of ultrashort pulse laser applications in biomedicine I have been involved with over the last 10 years. ? Selected video and images of surgeries and tissue interactions will be shown to illustrate these applications.
