Paper Abstract

The paper presents selected problems connected with medical application of laser radiation. Special attention has been paid to pulsed radiation with subnanosecond pulse duration. Three main directions of basic research and investigations of laser medical devices are widely described. These are the problems related to pulse interaction, including short, piko- and femtosecond pulses used in laser therapy, the problems of interaction of mid-IR laser radiation with special consideration of interaction of nanosecond pulses of 3-μm wavelength radiation with tissues, and the problems of laser radiation used in optical diagnostics.
