Selected Papers on Ultrashort Laser Pulse Bioeffects
William P. Roach, Thomas E. Johnson
SPIE Optical Engineering Press, 2003 - Medical - 653 pages
This volume contains key papers that document the initial probing of the limits of subnanosecond pulses and the resulting discoveries of nonlinear effects. The papers tell the story of effects previously thought to be impossible to produce in tissue. If you read all the references carefully, you will see the studies evolve from speculation to experimentation to theory, and culminate in policy recommendations.
