The paper presents laser sets, including forsterite laser, applicable for the HpD therapy. We describe the laser sets pumped by the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser pulse, generating radiation within a therapeutic range and diagnostic one as well as the set generating within the q-W regime. We discuss the results of investigations carried out with the laser set for diagnosis. The set comprises the KZnF3 laser with a ruby pump. The forsterite laser pumped by the q-CW Nd:YAG laser, at 20 W of a pump power, can generate radiation of average power of about 400 mW at wavelength of (lambda) equals 1270 nm or radiation of average power of 150 mW at wavelength of 630 nm. The tunable range of the set is (lambda) equals +/- 20 nm FH and (Delta) (lambda) equals +/- 10 nm for the SH of forsterite laser. We have also analyzed other laser sets fulfilling requirements of the HpD diagnosis and therapy.
