Table 3 Dependence of the status of M13 bacteriophage on laser pulse width

From: Prospects for a novel ultrashort pulsed laser technology for pathogen inactivation

Pulse Width (fs) 80 250 500 800 1000
Spectral Width (cm–1) (80) (25) (12) (6.5) (5)
Status Inactivation (Yes or No) Yes Yes Yes No No
  1. (The excitation laser intensity is kept at 5.6 × 10–6J/cm2).
  2. (The numbers with in the brackets indicate the spectral width in cm–1).
