Resonance Fluorescence Spectroscopy: A Diagnostic Tool for the Ablation of Biological Tissue
A widespread application of different types of lasers with, emission wavelengths from the ultraviolet (excimer lasers, λ: 193–351 nm) to the infrared (solid state lasers λ: 1064–2930 nm) spectral region, pulsed lasers with pulse widths ranging from femtoseconds to milliseconds as well as continuous wave (cw) lasers for the ablation of biological tissue has been reported up to now [1–3]. Especially XeCl excimer lasers have proven the possibility of precisely etching and removing biological tissue. The most urgent problem to be solved proceeding towards a minimal-invasive laser surgery is a reliable on-line control of the laser action in order to differentiate between different types of tissue.
