Laser Ablation - Laser Ablation is the process of removing material from a surface by irradiating it with a laser beam. Laser-based ablation is greatly affected by the nature of the material and its ability to absorb energy, therefore the wavelength of the ablation laser should have a minimum absorption depth. While mostly this term references pulsed lasers, it's also possible to ablate a surface using a Continuous Wave laser beam if the intensity and duration of use is optimized. Within biological sciences, laser ablation has been used to study cell function, cell structure, tissue interaction, gene structuring, and neuron interaction and is now increasingly used within medicinal fields such ophthalmology, dermatology, oncology and neurosurgery.
