Several nonlinear effects (i.e., continuum generation, self-focusing, and material damage) were studied during femtosecond photodisruption. Numerical aperture dependence of white-light continuum generation and material damage were determined and a relation between the two effects was shown. We showed the possibility of reducing nonlinear side effects and at the same time ensuring precise cut by using lenses of a suitable numerical aperture for refractive surgery, cell surgery, and tissue dissection. Other side effects associated with optical breakdown in model substance were also discussed.
