Abstract
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in situ synthesis within cultures of retinal pigment epithelial cells exposed to near-IR (NIR) continuous wave (CW) and mode-locked lasers is investigated. Any production of H2O2 as a consequence of NIR laser exposure is indicative of a multiphoton absorption event, resulting in an intracellular photochemical reaction. Comparisons of mode-locked and CW laser threshold energies required for the photo-oxidative reaction provide support for an enhancement in multiphoton absorption in tissues exposed to the high peak powers inherent in mode-locked laser beams. Due to different fluorescent staining properties our results indicate different mechanisms for oxidative stress from CW and mode- locked laser exposure.
