Abstract

We measure the surface ablation threshold fluence of porcine corneal stroma for 100 fs laser pulses, with wavelengths between 800 nm and 1450 nm, generated by a Ti:sapphire-pumped optical parametric amplifier. The ablation threshold was found to vary only slightly within this wavelength range, between 1.5 and 2.2 J/cm2. The data suggest a rapid increase of the ablation threshold for wavelengths up to about 1000 nm, followed by a plateau for longer wavelengths. This behavior is partly confirmed by a simple theoretical model of the ablation process. The influence of the wavelength on the physics of surface ablation is discussed on the basis of the model.
