  • Covers the major developments in the application of ultrafast lasers in medicine and biology
  • Focuses on optical analysis, biology, surgery, and ophthalmology
  • Serves as a valuable reference for both researchers and medical practitioners
  • Provides examples covering non-linear imaging techniques, optical tomography, and laser surgery

Sources of ultrashort laser pulses are nowadays commercially available and have entered many areas of research and development. This book gives an overview of biological and medical applications of these laser pulses. The briefness of these laser pulses permits the tracing of the fastest processes in photo-active bio-systems, which is one focus of the book. The other focus is applications that rely on the high peak intensity of ultrashort laser pulses. Examples covered span non-linear imaging techniques, optical tomography, and laser surgery.
