Abstract

Experimental evidence of partial vaporization at nucleation sites was demonstrated during the very early phase of Q-switched pulsed infrared laser induced bubbles in water. Over a significant range of fiber areas, the partial vaporization model fitted the experimental data extremely well (r = 0.99). It was shown that the theory can be employed to development of laser delivery strategies which minimized unwanted collateral mechanical tissue damage by reducing the maximum bubble size.
