Paper Abstract

Progress in the use of miniature optoelectronic systems based on Coherent-Light-Emitting- Diodes (CLEDs) and CLED-pumped solid-state lasers (Microlasers) is reported for: (1) retina photocoagulation with 800 nm diode lasers and 532 nm Nd:YAB Microlasers; (2) endoscopic photocoagulation of gastrointestinal tumors with an 800 nm high power multi-CLED system; (3) 800 nm diode laser-assisted microvascular anastomosis; (4) photodynamic therapy of tumors with 780 nm CLED and 660 nm LED.
