Laser Surgery and Medical Diagnostics

The development of novel fiber laser sources in the mid-infrared wavelengths (2-10 µm) is very important for biomedical applications. The mid-infrared absorption spectra are significantly different for different biological fluids, soft tissues and hard tissues.  The proper mid-infrared wavelength selection for a particular laser surgery will optimize the surgery performance and eliminate collateral damages.
