Cavitation bubbles

A research team at standford university is currently working in ArF lasser technics to induce cavitation in a gel surrounded by a liquid medium that might be used later in biological tissue. This is a great breakthrough for medicine since it could be used not only for regular surgery with more precision, but it could be used to eliminate cancer cells too. In the following link, is a full description of the research of standford´s research team: http://www.stanford.edu/~palanker/publications/excimer%20laser%20in%20gel.pdf

For more information about cavitation, I recomend the next video, which describe in a brief and easy way, what cavitation and cavitation bubbles are, and some possible applications for this.
