The use of lasers in medical practice has dramatically increased over the years. Lasers and modern optics have largely been unexplored in medical science. This contributed work is both optimistic and cautionary in its expert evaluation of the state-of-the-art medical use of laser technology. The use of lasers to improve upon conventional practice is highlighted in the foreword by the late Dr. CHAPTER 12 Low-Power Laser Applications Advantages of Laser Light Reading with Lasers Optical Disks and Data Storage Laser Printing Lasers in Fiber-Optic Communications Laser Measurement Laser Light Shows, Pointers, and Projection Displays Low-Power Defense.

The book presents exhaustive and timely coverage of low-power laser light therapy and photobiomodulation, a subject gaining increasing acceptance from the scientific and medical communities after years of controversial interpretations of clinical results.

For example, the Australian Medical Acupuncture College stated recently that "the optimal energy density for laser acupuncture and biostimulation, based on current clinical experience, is 4 J/cm(2)".

Low Level Laser Therapy. LLLT is defined by specific characteristic parameters, primarily the value of power within the range of 10−3W to 10−1W, and the wavelength in the interval where the radiation is not absorbed by the water.

Clinical applications with low-level laser therapy in arthritis / Jan M. Bjordal Use of low-level laser therapy and light-emitting diode therapy to improve muscle performance and prevent damage: from animal models to clinical trials / Cleber Ferraresi, Nivaldo .Many laser applications depend on the ability of a particular laser to be frequency tunable.

Among the many different types of frequency tunable lasers are: dye lasers, excimer lasers, and semiconductor lasers. Thisbook gives active researchers and engineers the practical information they need to choose an appropriate tunable laser for their particular ts a unified and.A laser with such little power does not have a dramatic effect on the objects it strikes, but it may make minor changes, such as exposing photographic film.

As we will see, there are many types of low-power laser applications. In some, the laser is little more than a high-performance light bulb, but for others special features of laser light.
