Abstract

This article shows the development of a concept for a Thulium (Tm) laser scalpel at the emitting wavelength of 1.92 µm with a maximum output power of 60 W. The system is currently developed at the Medical Laser Center in Luebeck for a clinical investigation in minimal invasive surgery, e. g. to be used on liver and kidney. The concept includes technical construction as well as the design and usability referring to standards in medical engineering. The required documentation, design and the software were part of two diploma theses at the Institute of Biomedical Optics/University of Luebeck, Germany.
