Optical fibers and waveguides for medical applications

Israel Gannot, Moshe Ben-David

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Lasers are used in medical applications for a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum: x-ray, ultraviolet (UV), the visible, the near-infrared, and ending, at this time, in the mid-infrared. This wide range of wavelengths must be transmitted from the source (laser) to the target tissue by a flexible device that enables easy manipulation of the laser beam in a medical setting.
