Abstract : An approach to accurate measurement of time temperatures with an implanted thermocouple following ruby laser exposure is described. The problems inherent in such measurements are discussed. This method indicates a linear reciprocal correlation between temperature and depth from 0.25C/joule at 2 mm depth to 0.11C/joule at 5 mm depth. (Author)
