Abstract

Precise ablation of bone tissue was carried out using plasma luminescence spectroscopy. Luminescence was generated from a high temperature plasma during ablation. The luminescence intensity decreases as the ablation front moves deeper into the ablation hole. It was observed that the hard tissue can be selectively ablated with high accuracy.
