Investigation of clinical internal microsurgical device with use of hollow waveguide delivered infrared free electron laser

Published

Journal Article

An application of hollow waveguide delivered infrared free electron laser (FEL) was investigated. The laser produced macro pulses of 5 μs duration at a repetition rate of 30 Hz. Each macro pulse consisted of a train of 1 ps micropulses repeating at 3 GHz. By tuning the laser wavelength to the absorption peaks of the tissue or molecular, the optimum wavelength for specific laser-tissue interaction can be identified. Results of the investigation showed that by using hollow waveguide delivery system, the infrared FEL is suitable for the intraocular microsurgical applications.
