Abstract
The paper presents research work and technological trials aiming at conception and manufacturing of the light guide rods (applicators) for the photon coagulators applied for therapeutical treatment and surgery. Such rods, due to their light guiding structure, enable effective guidance of the NIR radiation of a high energy directly to the treatment area. A method was worked out to convert specially matched glasses into the integrated light transmitting structures. The effect of a type and quality of the glass, light guides structure and their aperture onto the effectiveness of radiation power transmission was investigated. The first trials were carried out to apply new types of rods for laparoscope and gynecological treatments.
