Call for
The basic mechanisms of laser tissue and cell interactions fall into three categories: photochemical, photomechanical, and photothermal. These mechanisms form a fundamental basis for the field but are now expanded to include the cellular and bio-molecular response to irradiation from lasers and laser systems both in vitro and in vivo. Understanding the fundamental mechanisms of interactions between light, tissue and cells is the basis for the development of future biomedical optic technologies that include both therapeutic and diagnostic applications.

A preliminary list of session topics is listed below. Please include these terms in abstracts for the purpose of organizing sessions.
  • photothermal interactions
  • photochemical and photo-oxidative interactions
  • photomechanical effects
  • mechanisms of pulsed laser ablation
  • ultrafast pulsed laser interactions
  • fundamental mechanisms in nanomedicine
  • optical monitoring of tissue mechanics
  • optical properties of tissues
  • cellular micro-and nanosurgery
  • cellular biomolecular response
  • mechanistic studies of laser welding and soldering of tissue
  • numerical approaches simulating laser-tissue interactions and response
  • electromagnetic field bioeffects
  • THz technology, sensing, and biological effects.
