Abstract
During the more than 25 years that have passed since the laser source of coherent light made its appearance at physical and chemical laboratories a deeper insight has been gained into the interac- tion of light with atoms and molecules in the gas phase and condensed media. Typical of the last decade is the extension of these studies to cover more complex structures, such as biological mole- cules and tissue. This has been dictated by the need to substantiate more comprehensively the nu- merous applications of laser light in biology and medicine.16 The extensive use of lasers at labo- ratories has made very urgent the problem of laser radiation dosimetry from the standpoint of laser action on the human organism.
