Paper Abstract

This work presents the mechanisms adopted for the design of micro-second pulsed laser mode for a CW Self-Raman laser cavity in 586nm and 4W output power. The new technique for retina disease treatment discharges laser pulses on the retina tissue, in laser sequences of 200 μs pulse duration at each 2ms. This operation mode requires the laser to discharge fast electric pulses, making the system control velocity of the electronic system cavity vital. The control procedures to keep the laser output power stable and the laser head behavior in micro-second pulse mode are presented.
