Paper Abstract

Precise knowledge of the spatial distributions of optical radiation in the biological medium is required in all cases of medical laser procedures, but for the low-energy interactions influencing the course of photochemical processes (biostimulation treatments) has not yet been precisely controlled. The variety of procedures and results of the trials will mobilize to look for unequivocal parameters of laser radiation, which both in vitro and in vivo will result in acceleration of cell proliferation and the expected therapeutic efficacy. There is a need to conduct objective diagnostic tests of tissues during treatment using a laser measuring system analyzing the status of the tissue (its optical properties) during therapeutic exposition. It is necessary to build an illuminator providing homogeneous distribution of spectral power density and spatial power density on the surface of the test. An illumination set is composed of a collection of over a dozen diodes LED emitting in therapeutic window of biological tissue (range 600-1000 nm). In this paper are presented the optical couplers enable the implementation of this purpose - conical coupler and MM planar fiber.
