Paper Abstract

Studies were made of the propagation of both continuous wave, all line, argon ion (515,496,488,476 nm) and Nd:YAG (1060 nm) laser radiation from a spherically-tipped optical fiber through a blood-saline solution. It was found that the transmission of the argon ion laser light through the mixture increased as the power emitted from the tip increased. The transmission of Nd:YAG laser radiation through a similar mixture showed a reduction in transmission as power increased.
