Paper Abstract

Alexandrite lasers have been developed over the past decade and are now playing an increasing role in medical research and clinical practice. The characteristics of these lasers are described including: the ability to tune their wavelength, to convert the output into other ultraviolet, visible, and infrared wavelengths, and to vary their pulse duration. Several new clinical applications and promising new areas of ongoing research utilize the unique wavelength and temporal versatility of these lasers.
