INTERACTION OF IR-LASER RADIATION WITH BIOLOGICAL TISSUES. LASER DIAGNOSTICS OF DISEASES
St. Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics; Professor
Abstract. Several problems of laser radiation interaction with biological tissues are considered. Perspective applications of diagnostic lasers are discussed: gas analyzers on the base of tunable laser diodes in the middle IR, coherent high-resolution tomography on the base of wide-band light sources, and terahertz tomography.
Keywords: gas analyzer, coherent tomography, femtosecond laser, phonon-crystal fibers, terahertz spectral range.
