Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputChapter


In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the development of compact and low-cost, versatile, broadly tunable CW and ultra-short pulse laser sources generating light across the near-infrared and visible spectral ranges. The progress in this area has brought to science and industry an enormous number of new applications. Such laser systems which were mostly utilised in the communication and other industries are now becoming adopted in biomedicine and related fields. Here we would like to outline some of the most promising applications where compact laser diode based light sources in UV/visible, near and mid infrared wavelength ranges are being used in biomedical photonics.
