The purpose of this study was to investigate the laserinduced ablation of bovine bone assisted by a transparent liquid layer on top of the target surface. A Q-switched Nd:YAG laser was used to ablate bovine tibia at various energy levels. Distilled water was applied to the sample surface in order to examine the role of a transparent liquid layer during the ablation. Plasma generation and transient acoustic waves were monitored to identify dominant mechanisms involved in the ablation process.doi:10.1109/jqe.2006.875867 fatcat:53evw7wow5axznxtd4pny5i6zi
