Paper Abstract

We used 5.0 MHz ultrasonic pulses to monitor stress relaxation in Nd:YAG (λ = 1.32 μm) laser irradiated porcine nasal septal cartilage. Cartilage is irradiated in both uniaxial compression and curved deformation. A thin beam load cell and IR thermocouple measure strain (Vpp) and temperature (°C), respectively. We show that the propagation speed of the ultrasonic pulse is indicative of permanent stress relaxation in porcine nasal septal cartilage.
