The physical processes behind laser tattoo removal – what is really going on?

I presented a video to the British Medical Laser Association conference in May 2021, discussing my work on the physical processes which may be occurring during laser tattoo removal. In it, I discuss the formation of steam bubbles, how they evolve over time, the latent heat energy of vaporisation and condensation, and the cyclic bubble… Continue reading The physical processes behind laser tattoo removal – what is really going on?

Laser Tattoo Removal – wavelengths and anisotropy

I’ve just made a couple of little animations looking at the differences between the laser wavelengths we use for tattoo removal and how anisotropy comes into play. You might be surprised at what actually happens in the skin. Anisotropy is rarely discussed in the laser tattoo world, yet it has significant effects on treatment outcomes.… Continue reading Laser Tattoo Removal – wavelengths and anisotropy

How do viruses, and laser plume, spread in the air…?

The New York Times published an excellent article showing the fluid dynamics of contaminated air in a school roon, under various conditions of ventilation and flitration. The simulation reveals how the concentration of viral particles changes in a room of students, when one is infected with a virus. The same results would apply to a… Continue reading How do viruses, and laser plume, spread in the air…?
