Introduction
• Laser induced optical breakdown (LIOB), or photodisruption,
can be used to generate microbubbles within individual cells.
• Can be spatially confined by tightly focusing laser beam
• With femtosecond laser pulses, the generation threshold can be
obtained with low total energy delivery (few nJ/pulse)
• Virtually no collateral thermal and mechanical effects to out
of focus areas
• Laser generated bubbles can be clearly detected and monitored
with high-frequency ultrasound do to their excellent acoustic
reflectivity
Laser Induced Optical Breakdown
• Optical breakdown in water is similar to transparent biological tissue
• Electrons in liquid are either bound to a particular molecule or “quasi-free”
• Possess sufficient kinetic energy to move without being captured by local
molecular energy potentials
• Treat water as an amorphous semiconductor
• “Free electrons” means “quasi-free electrons”
• “Ionization” means “excitation into the conduction band”
• For optical breakdown to occur, a nonlinear absorption mechanism must
deposit laser energy into the material by promoting electrons from the valence
band to the conduction band
• Photoionization and avalanche (cascade) ionization
• If enough energy is deposited into the material by these nonlinear absorption
mechanisms, a self-absorbing plasma is created
• This rapidly expands and vaporizes the material
• The expansion of gaseous products produced during ablation creates a bubble
in the liquid surrounding the ablation site.

Laser Irradiation and Optical Detection
• Chinese hamster ovary cells in vitro
• Short axis diameter of approx. 10 m
• Microbubbles were generated in individual cells with:
• 100fs pulses
• 793nm Ti:Sapphire laser
• Repetition rate = 3.8kHz
• 40x 0.6 N.A. objective
• Diffraction-limited spot size = 1.6 m
• Minimum intensity to produce a
microbubble visible using the optical
microscope with 100 pulses
was 4.6 J/cm2
Acoustic Detection
• Single element ultrasonic transducer
• 50 MHz center frequency
• 4.1mm focal length
• 3mm diameter
• Acoustic probe pulses were synchronized with laser pulsing at
3.8 kHz
• Transducer was triggered approx. 2s after each pulse
Cell Viability
• 0.4% trypan blue was used as a colorimetric
live/dead exclusion assay
• Cells with intact membranes could exclude the
dye and were considered viable
• Cells that were nonviable took up the dye and
became darkly stained
• Still images were recorded before laser exposure
and again after laser exposure and staining
• 1-2 hours after laser exposure

Cell Viability Results
Viability data for cells exposed to a varying
number of laser pulses at low (5–9 J/cm2),
intermediate (14–23 J/cm2), and high (41–
55 J/cm2) laser fluences. Error bars
represent standard error at each set of
parameters.
Viability data for cells exposed to a
varying number of laser pulses at low
(5–9 J/cm2) laser fluence, where the
intracellular focal spot was positioned
in either the nucleus or the cytosol of
each target cell. Error bars represent
standard error at each set of
parameters.
Applications
• Laser-induced microbubbles can potentially be used as
therapeutic agents by selectively destroying single cells without
damaging cells in the immediate vicinity.
• Acoustic microscopy for detection of LIOB induced
microbubbles
• Photodisruption through the entire thickness of human
scleral tissue for ophthalmic surgery applications.
• Not optically transparent
• Ultrasonic microscopy can clearly detect the microbubbles
through the thickness
Conclusions
• LIOB to generate localized acoustically detectable bubbles within
single cells
• Exploit high precision of tightly focused fs pulses
• Acoustic detection had not been previously explored
• By controlling laser fluence and exposure duration, LIOB can produce
intracellular bubbles with a broad range of sizes and lifetimes
• Can act as minimally invasive diagnostic markers or, if desired,
destructive agents for selective cell killing.
• Long term effects need to be examined
• Minimum pulse fluence used in these studies (4.6 J/cm2) was fluence
needed to create a bubble that could be optically detected within
limitations of the optical microscopy system.
• Actual threshold fluence for breakdown with 100 fs pulses is
approx. 1J/cm2 in water and 1.5 J/cm2 in tissue
