Paper Abstract

A tissue phantom of water with an absorbing dye, Allura Red, was used to observe the effects of thermal lensing in a thick sample exposed to a CW 532 nm Verdi laser. A collimated beam was sent through a sample 2.9 cm thick. Results from the collimated beam revealed qualitative information about thermal lensing in a liquid media. The studies presented here argue the relevance of incorporating oscillating factors such as convectional flow into higher order thermal lensing models in a fluid such as water.
