Paper Abstract

In medical applications of the laser, particular radiation patterns of light on the tissue to be treated are often required. This need can be satisfied by unconventionally shaped fibre tips. The most promising examples of such tips are briefly reviewed. The most important fa-brication methods are also considered as well as the medical or surgical applications which are under investigation.
