Paper Abstract

In recent years significant improvement of power and spectral characteristics of semiconductor lasers has taken place. The power of serial single near-IR semiconductor lasers has achieved units of watts, the spectral range has been extended from 0.63 to 1.7...1.8 micrometers . The available level of semiconductor lasers, their small dimensions and weight, together with the characteristics of the modern fiberoptic systems, electronic and microprocessor components as well as small dimensions and weight of modern power supplies allow development of a compact portable self-contained blood coagulator, which is of great importance for use in various emergencies, natural calamities, and in many other areas. The report discusses the problems of designing the coagulator, its technical and user characteristics as well as the possibilities to use such a coagulator in other fields of laser medicine.
