Fig. 4. Continuous wave and pulsed laser waveform illustrated. (A) CW and chopped CW beam. (B) 1 ms pulsed laser. (C) Single shot Q-switched laser beam. (D) Train of high-frequency Q-switched beams separated by a very long interpulse interval to give a beam ‘seen’ by the tissue as CW, hence ‘quasi-CW’. (E) Not euro. €: The significant difference in peak power between a 5 ns Q-switched beam and a 450 ps beam.
