Paper Abstract

This paper represents the method of contact zone effective temperature measuring by registering thermal radiation which is back propagated through the main laser radiation delivery fiber channel. The results of contact zone temperature measuring experiments for some different tissue types are also represented. The present method allows us to obtain a reliable real-time information about instant temperature in the contact zone using a reliable scale of time. The possibility of thermal feed-back control of an in contact laser destructor based on Ho laser is evaluated.
