Abstract
We report measurements of damage threshold and transparency of quartz fibers for the λ= 248, 308 and 351 nm radiation. Thresholds and specific energy for tissue photoablation have been determined for these wavelengths. Results of clinical applications of UV fiber laser scalpels for angioplasty and extirpation of tumours from bronchi are discussed.
