Paper Abstract

In the problem of the use of lasers for photodynamié therapy (PDT) it will be very interesting to use compact laser without special condition for its exploitation. As previosly reported (1), a using of the gold vapour laser (GVL) is very effective for PDT. We create a GVL with 2 W average power. We use a sealed-off laser tube produced on the base of progressive metal-ceramic technology. A length of the tube is 700 mm. Active length - 400 mm. The diametre of tube is 12 mm. A pressure of neon buffer gas is 200 torn
