superpulsed laser

superpulsed laser

a type of pulsed carbon dioxide laser in which each pulse is extremely short (e.g., 0.1 msec) with as many as 1000 pulses per second. Peak powers can reach several thousand watts per pulse, the end result of which is a beam that causes less thermal damage to tissue adjacent to the target.

The aim of this study is the "ex vivo" evaluation of the histological effects of a C[O.sub.2] superpulsed laser on oral soft tissues [10,11], in order to determine the exact extent of peripheral thermal signs.
