Abstract
The immediate pulse-to-pulse interaction becomes more and more important for future-generation high-repetition rate ophthalmic laser systems. Therefore, we investigated the interaction of two laser pulses with different spatial and temporal separation by time-resolved photography. There are various different characteristic interaction mechanisms which are divided into 11 interaction scenarios. Furthermore, the parameter range has been constricted regarding the medical application; here, the efficiency was optimized to a maximum jet velocity along the scanning axis with minimum applied pulse energy as well as unwanted side effects at the same time. In conclusion, these results are of great interest for the prospective optimization of the ophthalmic surgical process with future-generation fs-lasers.
