Laser Medical Technology for the Twenty-first Century

  • Myron C. Muckerheide


The ability of the laser to vaporize minute quantities of material may result, in the twenty-first century, in a controlled, subatomic tool. It is certainly feasible at the present time to vaporize single cells or portions of cells with a broad range of laser devices and wavelengths, and certain characteristics of laser vaporization are analogous to cosmic-particle penetration.
