1 May 1995 Compact sealed-off gold vapor laser for photodynamic therapy
Author Affiliations +
In the problem of the use of lasers for photodynamié therapy (PDT) it will be very interesting to use compact laser without special condition for its exploitation. As previosly reported (1), a using of the gold vapour laser (GVL) is very effective for PDT. We create a GVL with 2 W average power. We use a sealed-off laser tube produced on the base of progressive metal-ceramic technology. A length of the tube is 700 mm. Active length - 400 mm. The diametre of tube is 12 mm. A pressure of neon buffer gas is 200 torn
