Due to their high reliability, modest electrical and cooling requirements, and their compact size, diode laser systems are attractive high power, fiber-coupled laser sources for surgical and therapeutics procedures. We describe Applied Optronics Corporation's LM series of portable air-cooled diode laser systems delivering 25 W or 50 W of cw power from the distal end of a disposable, 0.37 NA optical fiber with a core size of 600 micrometers or 1 mm respectively. In comparative tissue interaction studies using the 980 nm laser source, three laser interaction regimes are identified and characterized for laser interactions with six types of cadervic soft tissue.
