Paper Abstract

Effective laser welding of biological tissues require strict temperature control over the entire process, because the allowed temperature margin is 2K around the tissue-specific coagulation temperature. The paper presents the results of the research concerning laser tissue welding, using continuous wave laser diode, including the description of a test stand and conducted experiments. The influence of energetic and time parameters of a laser beam on the observed thermal effects is discussed and the application of fast thermal camera for the monitoring of tissue welding process is presented.
