Heat Analysis of Biological Tissue Exposed to Laser Pulses
J. Marciak–Kozlowska and M. Kozlowski
In this paper the theoretical framework for the study of the thermal processes in the human cornea is formulated. For the case when the duration of the thermal pulse is shorter than the thermal relaxation time in the human cornea, thermal waves could be observed.
