Learning about Femtosecond Lasers

A Collaboration with the Center for Ultrafast Optical Sciences

One Dr Sayegh's longtime interests has been in the field of Femtosecond Lasers.

The use of femtosecond lasers has proven to be a very powerful and versatile tool in the area of ophthalmic surgery.  LASIK has benefited from the creation of controlled flaps and all-laser procedures and cataract surgery is contemplating a move to a femtosecond laser platform in the coming years.  A Nobel Prize for femtosecond spectroscopy was awarded to Dr. Ahmed Zuwail of Caltech. Leading the effort of femtosecond ophthalmic applications starting in the mid and late 90s, Dr Sayegh pioneered a technology that has and will profoundly impact ophthalmic surgery.  His work was in collaboration with Dr. Ron Kurtz and other Intralase and Center for Ultrafast Optical Sciences members at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
