Abstract : A theoretical analysis has been performed for the phase transitions from liquid to gas on the boundary of a spherical particle, submerged in a fluid such as water or ocular media, that is heated by absorption of sub-nanosecond laser pulses. This analysis was based on the conservation of mass and it utilized the general heat conduction equation for the principle of conservation of energy and the basic hydrodynamic equation for the incompressible fluid for the expression of conservation of momentum.
