OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of bracket removal using an erbium laser on the pulp temperature and enamel surface. BACKGROUND: Removal of orthodontic brackets with conventional debonding pliers may result in enamel cracks. To avoid damage to the enamel surface and effectively remove metal or ceramic brackets, different types of lasers, such as Nd:YAG, CO2 , TM:YAP, diode laser, or Er:YAG, have been introduced for debonding. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 55 brackets (n = 55; 20 metal and 35 ceramic ones) were bonded to 55 caries-free premolars extracted for orthodontic indications...

An average 9 kilowatt-level direct-D2 O-cooled side-pumped Nd:YAG multi-disk laser resonator at QCW mode with a pulse width of 250μs is presented, in which the straight-through geometry is adopted the oscillating laser propagates through 40 Nd:YAG thin disks and multiple cooling D2 O flow layers in the Brewster angle. Much attention has been paid on the design of the gain module, including an analysis of the loss of the laser resonator and the design of the Nd:YAG thin disk. Experimentally, laser output with the highest pulse energy of more than 20 J is obtained at a repetition frequency of 10 Hz...

In this work, the anisotropy of nonlinear absorption in a crystal Q-switch was considered when we established coupled rate equations of a passively Q-switched laser. A [100]-cut Cr4+ :YAG crystal, with initial transmission T0 =40%, was used as the Q-switch to evaluate the theoretical model, and the results of the simulation were in good accordance with the experiment. In order to control timing jitter of the passively Q-switched laser, an actively Q-switched Nd:YAG laser was applied to directly bleach the [100]-cut Cr4+ :YAG crystal...

Introduction - To present a rare case of bilateral acute angle-closure glaucoma secondary to duloxetine administered for the treatment of depression. Case presentation - A 46 year old woman developed bilateral closed angle glaucoma after 15 days of duloxetine usage. Intraocular pressures (IOP) were 52 and 55 mm Hg in right and left eyes respectively, with shallow anterior chamber and angle closure on gonioscopy. Discontinuing duloxetine treatment, initiation of antiglaucomatous treatment and bilateral Nd:YAG Laser iridotomy obtained normalized IOP and anterior chamber depth...

In this paper, we design an optical system that can adjust YAG laser focus, and it can avoid the damage of intraocular lens in the YAG laser surgery. Focusing optical system uses beam expander principle, uses the spiral cam and the worm as adjust part, which can move YAG laser focus from -500 μm to +500 μm on the target tissue.

RATIONALE: Laser ablation masss spectromety has been previously proved to be a powerful tool for studying endohedro metallofullerene (EMF) ions. Our previous study showed the possiblity of forming multi-metallofullerene ions containg more than six metal atoms for La, Y and Lu. Thus, it is important to conduct a systematic study on the generation of multi-metallofullerenes and their distribuitons for all lanthanide elements. METHODS: Experiments were performed on a 7...

We report a laser that emits two Q-switched pulses, one at 1.047 μm and the other at 1.064 μm, generated by a Nd:YLF and a Nd:YVO4 , respectively. The crystals are pumped by two fiber-coupled diode lasers (808 nm and 880 nm); the delay between the pulses can be controlled by adjusting the power of the pumps. Two kinds of Q-switching techniques are reported, passive (Cr:YAG saturable absorber) and active (electro-optic modulator). We model both the active and passive Q switching and make a comparison between numerical simulations and experiments...

A novel approach for serum analysis by dried matrix spot (DMS) technique is proposed. The methodology consists of sampling filter paper discs (2.7 mm in diameter) containing the large amount of serum retained after a single spotting. Several oxidizers (sodium chlorate, sodium azide, acetic acid, formic acid, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazoliumm chloride/bromide) were tested (oxidizers premixed with the sample before spotting, and papers previously soaked in concentrated additive/oxidizer solutions). Direct multi-element determination (Al, Be, Ca, Cu, Fe, K, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, P, Rb, Se, V, and Zn) in dried serum spots at very low levels was therefore assessed by laser ablation (LA) coupled with inductively coupled plasma - mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)...

Purpose: To report two cases of panuveitis in immunocompetent patients in which cytomegalovirus was involved. Observation: Case 1 was a 46-year-old man who had a history of recurrent anterior chamber inflammations in his left eye. After Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy, he developed panuveitis with vitreous haze and periphlebitis. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) examination revealed the presence of cytomegalovirus (CMV) DNA in the anterior chamber (AC). He responded well to a series of intravitreal injections of ganciclovir (GCV)...
