Paper Abstract

Last year laser medicine received high recognition as an effective means of treatment and preventative maintenance of processing of various tissues. The use of fiber-optical systems in laser medical installations allows us to produce a lot of operations without surgical insertions and treatment in difficult locations. Application of such systems assumes the formation of laser spot in the processing area by special technique. It is possible to be reached using the various optical elements, however the use of conventional microlenses and elements leads to the essential increase of tool dimensions. A lot of methods enabling us to form the microlenses on the ends of fibers by the methods of fusion of fiber material are known. We already offer the method of formation of microlenses by means of co-actions of carbon dioxide laser radiation and various mechanical forces. In this report we present a lot of fiber-optical elements for the formation of laser radiation, produced by such method, and some of their optical parameters being measured by special technique. The list of designed elements is submitted in Table 1. The above-mentioned elements can be formed on the optical fibers of the quartz-quartz, quartz-polymer types, glass and sapphire fibers.
