Question
(a) What is the frequency of the 193-nm ultraviolet radiation used in laser eye surgery? (b) Assuming the accuracy with which this EM radiation can ablate the cornea is inversely proportional to wavelength, how much more accurate can this UV be than the shortest visible wavelength of light?
1. $1.55 \times 10^{15} \textrm{ Hz}$
2. The UV light is 49% more accurate.
