Abstract
Two unconventional methods, which may be used in some cases to control heat conduction conditions responsible for secondary effects both in laser surgery and in laser material transformation, are presented. The tools developed for this purpose are based either on thermoelectrically controlled (TEC) or on thermodynamically controlled (TDC) temperature pattern generation around the acting laser beam. Using TEC laser scalpel secondary tissue damages may be avoided, while transformation hardening by laser radiation may be controlled through the thermodynamic effect known as Ranque-effect.
