In this topic are described the main parameters controlling the laser-biological matter interactions. They will be illustrated the laser properties and the physical concepts at the base of the coherent light emission. In particular they will be discussed the role of the laser intensity, wavelength, duration of the laser pulse, mechanisms of photon energy transfer to bio-medical materials, and many bio-medical and bio -engineering applications. A close examination will concern the classification of the physical laser-matter interaction mechanisms like photochemical, photothermal, photoablation and electromechanical.

Abstract

In this topic are described the main parameters controlling the laser-biological matter interactions. They will be illustrated the laser properties and the physical concepts at the base of the coherent light emission. In particular they will be discussed the role of the laser intensity, wavelength, duration of the laser pulse, mechanisms of photon energy transfer to bio-medical materials, and many bio-medical and bio -engineering applications. A close examination will concern the classification of the physical laser-matter interaction mechanisms like photochemical, photothermal, photoablation and electromechanical. Certain uses in diagnostics, therapeutic applications in Cardiology, Dentistry, Ophthalmology, deposition of biocompatible thin films and laser welding will be reported. Significant advantages of the laser over conventional techniques, will be discussed.
