Paper Abstract

The gallium arsenide semiconductor laser can emit in the near infrared where the depth of penetration into tissue is great although scattering is less than with the Nd:YAG laser. The laser is highly compact. It runs off a normal electrical outlet with no cooling requirement. It is therefore quiet and convenient. The laser has been assessed in a wide variety of applications in our urological department.
