The previous article dealt with lethal dose of Argon-ion laser radiation to kill three organisms. It determined the energy density and the time required to kill S. aureus, E. tecalis and Ps. aeruginosa. It also determined that the lethal dose when divided into 2-3 parts was ineffective to achieve 100% kill of the bacteria. This article discusses the mechanism of action of Argon-ion laser in killing the bacteria and determines the optimum concentration of bacteria (CFU/ml2) required to achieve the kill.
