Lasers in Medical Diagnosis and Therapy: Basics, applications and future prospects provides an overview on medical lasers and laser systems as well as laser applications in medical diagnosis and therapy. Since it was written by physicists, it focusses on the physics and underlying mechanisms of laser diagnosis and therapy, and thus initially covers the basics of laser-light generation, a selection of the most important laser types and systems commonly used in medicine, and the principles of laser-light guidance. The book should be used as a textbook for lectures, practise lessons and for the preparation of exams. It is suitable for students, lecturers and researchers in the fields of medical engineering and technology, medical physics, medicine and surgery, ophthalmology, dermatology, laser physics and development, and optical engineering.
Prof. Dr rer nat Christoph Gerhard is a professor for laser and plasma technology at the Technical University of Applied Sciences of Wildau, Germany, and a visiting professor for optical system design at the Polytechnic University of Milan, Italy. He has published more than 60 papers in the fields of optics and laser, and plasma technology and authored two textbooks on basics of optics and manufacturing of optical components and systems. He is the main editor of a reference book on laser ablation.
Prof. Dr rer nat Stephan Wieneke is a professor for laser-plasma-hybrid technology at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Gottingen, Germany, where he has also taught applied laser medicine since 2004. In the last several years he was involved in the development and establishment of the new medical engineering course of study at the university. Prof. Wieneke is a member of the German Physical Society, is the editor of a reference book on laser ablation, and has published more than 50 articles in optics, laser science and plasma science.
