Abstract

A four-stage laser system was developed, emitting at a wavelength of 6450nm with a 35ns pulse duration, 2mJ pulse energy, and 12Hz pulse repetition rate. The laser system successfully ablated rat brain tissue, where both the collateral damage and the ablation rate compare favorably with that previously observed with a Mark-III Free-Electron Laser.
