Book Description

These milestone papers tell the story of effects previously thought to be impossible to produce in tissue. The studies evolve from speculation to experimentation to theory, and culminate in policy recommendations. This comprehensive reference book documents the initial probing limits of subnanosecond pulses and the resulting discoveries of nonlinear effects.
