Abstract
Prototype of a commercial laser system, capable of performing various surgical operations, was developed and produced. The laser unit can emit, separately or simultaneously, radiation with wavelengths 1.06 and 2.1 (mu) at an average power up to 30 and 6.5 W correspondingly. The construction of an optical scheme and power supply gives wide flexibility of the laser output parameters. Possible medical applications of the 1 - 2 micron laser system are considered.
