Abstract-There are significant benefits to medical laser surgeries performed with mid-infrared wavelengths, including the ability to select laser parameters in order to minimize photochemical and thermal collateral damage. It has been shown that a wavelength of 6.1 micrometers (m) is optimal when high ablation efficiency and minimal collateral damage is desired in biological soft tissues. Historically, free electron lasers were the only option for ablating tissue at this wavelength due todoi:10.1109/jstqe.2012.2188501 fatcat:frsyrck4brhlzk7xjvdh5vi2fm
