    of Global Capitalism and Early Modern Enlightenment Graduate students who wish to propose seminars are required to submit a proposal of one to two pages in which they explain the topic of study and its importance to the scholarly community Co direction especially by colleagues from different disciplines is desirable The curricula vitae of the two proposers should also be included with the application The proposal should emphasize the ways in which the topic is interdisciplinary and the departments from which it would seem that participants will be drawn Included in the narrative should be some commentary regarding ways in which the group may make use of the 3 500 budget that is allocated for funded year long seminars Examples of appropriate expenditures include speakers symposia group projects books or other research related materials for the seminar It is understood that these are preliminary thoughts regarding the budget since the exact direction of the seminar will not be determined until the group has been convened Coordinators who wish to propose a seminar for only one semester should include similar comments regarding a budget of up to 1 750 If the seminar is selected for funding the co proposers will assume administrative responsibility for that seminar All actual seminar expenditures during the course of the seminar meetings must be pre approved by a member of the Warren Center s staff Before the beginning of the fall term seminar coordinators for the selected seminars will communicate with the WarrenCenter to set up meeting times for the seminar Demands for use of the Warren Center s seminar room are high the earlier dates are set the more options will be available to that group The Warren Center will not survey seminar participants or expected participants to find meeting times this is the job

    quantitative tool To do so we need to have a very good grasp of the ablation associated plasma and cavitation dynamics These dynamics have been well studied in simple model systems like distilled water an excellent first step but biological systems obviously differ from water in important ways We are studying the plasma and cavitation dynamics observed during pulsed laser microsurgery in a model biological system fruit fly embryos and have found important differences in the dynamics observed in water and those observed in the fly embryos i e in vivo One of these physical constraint of cavitation bubbles by the biological matrix was anticipated by previous investigators The other a reduction in the plasma threshold due to biological molecules that could serve as sources of seed electrons at low intensities was not Physicists are generally very good at sweeping away extraneous details however work at the interface with biology is often criticized for broadly extrapolating from measurements in systems that are just too simple In this case we have made physical measurements on the fully complex in vivo system compared the results to the very simple system of distilled water and characterized the important ways that these two differ In a recent extension of this work we ve optimized techniques for holographic laser microsurgery i e used a phase only spatial light modulator basically a digital hologram to focus the laser to a user designed pattern and ablate multiple locations with a single pulse This will become an effective tool for probing cellular mechanics and it also opens up interesting new physics in the interactions among closely spaced cavitation bubbles See this article in Biophotonics this one in Photonics Spectra or follow this link to learn more Mid IR Lasers for Surgical Applications The goal of delicate neurosurgical and ophthalmic procedures is often to remove or ablate a defined volume of tissue while leaving surrounding tissue undamaged There are several laser systems that can achieve this task including mid infrared Free Electron Lasers mid IR FELs The Vanderbilt FEL was in fact used in several successful human surgeries Despite this success FELs are unlikely to ever find widespread use in patient care due to both cost and size constraints One of the major challenges in the field has been to translate the surgical successes of mid IR FELs to cost effective compact and dedicated medical laser systems This challenge became even more pressing with the demise of funding for the Department of Defense Medical FEL Program and decommissioning of the Vanderbilt FEL My group has taken the perspective that meeting this challenge requires a deeper physical understanding of mid IR tissue ablation We have thus investigated the details of tissue removal during mid IR laser ablation including the use of molecular spectroscopy FTIR micro Raman 13 C NMR scanning electron microscopy as well as UV and vibrational circular dichroism to unravel exactly how tissue structural integrity fails and found that the failure modes could be influenced by laser wavelength
