Lasers have prominent applications in relatively new fields like optical tomography, which uses ultrashort laser pulses to detect abnormalities within the body, and laser speckle flowmetry, which is used to detect changes in the blood flow within tissue. In biological research, an important trend in recent years has been the development of all-solid-state systems that use high-performance biomedical lasers to map many biologically important substances such as oxygen and calcium. While the oldest application of lasers in medicine, laser surgery is also expanding in scope. Femtosecond lasers have an amazing array of possible applications, especially in the health and medicine industry. The unique properties of ultrashort pulse lasers that make them effective for micro-processing are also highly useful for performing complex or delicate surgical procedures. Syntec Optics provides custom plastic optics for many critical laser applications.
