Paper Abstract

A high brightness laser-diode surgery system is described. As laser diode brightness is far below that of high-power gas or solid-state lasers, we designed a system by combining two high-power diode lasers of two different frequencies (patent pending). The combined power is coupled into a 600 micron fiber. We thus doubled the brightness at the distal end of the fiber. High power and high brightness are required in some medical procedures. Around this basic concept we built a 20 watt surgery system with emphasis on compactness and features. The system weighs only 7 kilograms, can be placed on a table or be hanged on a wall, offers optional three subcutaneous temperature measurement probes and has a rich menu of operating options displayed on an angle-adjustable LCD graphic display.
