What is it about?

An experimental study was carried out to assess the effect of light penetration depth on the flow and temperature distributions in flows that are partially heated using laser irradiation.

Why is it important?

The results reported herein demonstrate the convenience of laser irradation heating for the purpose of selectively localizing energy deposition during thermal therapies by modeling biological tissues as light-absorbing media.

Perspectives

The ultimate applicability of this work is to destroy cancerous tissues using localized laser irradiation heating
