Paper Abstract

The interaction between the low power light and the tissues is not clear. We chose the blood and the erythrocytes because, the first one is the plenty and most necessary for life and the erythrocyte is the simplest cell. Light from different sources, HeNe laser, 675 nm laser, 785 nm laser, 904 nm GaAs laser and 940 nm light emitting diode were used for irradiation of blood. We found a threshold time form which these lights induce changes in the normal blood cell. Results may be explained by considering the differences between the moment of inertia of the lipid configuration on the membrane of the cell.
