Because of its strong scattering effect in biological tissue, laser light (especially at near-infrared wavelength) can heat a comparatively large volume of tissue. This volume heating, coupled with other advantages (e.g. lasers can deliver high intensity light to small well-defined areas under precise control), makes the laser an excellent heat source. It can thus be used to achieve the thawing of frozen biological tissue. This may have great potentials in medicine (e.g. rewarming of cryopreserved biological tissue) and food industry.
