A new law in laser physics could make eye surgery simpler: New soliton laser pulses deliver high energy in a trillionth of a second - Science Daily A new law in laser physics could make eye surgery simpler: New soliton laser pulses deliver high energy in a trillionth of a second - Science Daily Posted: 25 May 2020 08:00 AM PDT Scientists have developed a new type of laser that can deliver high amounts of energy in very short bursts of time, with potential applications in eye and heart surgery or the engineering of delicate materials. The Director of the University of Sydney Institute of Photonics and Optical Science, Professor Martijn de Sterke, said: "This laser has the property that as its pulse duration decreases to less than a trillionth of a second, its energy could go through the roof. "This makes them ideal candidates for the processing of materials that require short, powerful pulses. One application could be in corneal s
