Does anyone have a service manual for this unit? We are trying to move laser service in-house as much as possible. Thanks.Reply


[list]     [*] Photochemical: Breaking molecular bonds      - UV light pulse hits tissue for 135-billionths of a second (135ns); the duration of the laser pulse      - 50 microns penetration      - Billions of molecular bonds fractures per pulse      - After 135-billionths of a second, laser energy is not emitted     [*] Photothermal: Producing thermal energy      - Absorption vibrates the molecular bonds of the plaque      - Vibration of bonds heats intracellular water      - Water vaporizes, molecules break apart, and cells rupture      - Expanding vapor bubble forms in 100-millionths of a second (100 µs)    [*] Photomechanical: Creating kinetic energy      - Expansion and collapse of vapor bubble breaks down tissue and clears byproducts away from tip      - Byproducts of ablation are water, gas, and small particles      - Entire process time per pulse is 400-millionths of a second (400 µs)    [/list]
