Paper Abstract

Geometry of laser light distribution within a target to be lased is considered to be crucial in laser medicine. If laser energy is transmitted via fiberoptic, then either bare, sculptured, lens, or mirror-based systems have been developed by many authors dependent on the specific application 2,8 A key problem of fabricating of a fiberoptic applicator [PA], however, is technology that could reproducibly provide a user with a needed model of FA. In particular, a few species of disposable FAs would be desirable, with different patterns of laser light distribution as related to a target. In the present paper, CO2 laser assisted technology is proposed that permits one to sculpture a PA in a way providing a geometry pattern required for a given procedure. Preliminary results of the study have been published elsewhere.
