Interferometric Optics

Tunable Laser Medicine and Medical Optics


At Interferometric Optics we have extensive experience in the design of lasers and optics for medicine and medical applications. Our specific experience focuses in tunable lasers for photodynamic therapy (PDT) and in optical systems for biomedical applications. In the latter we specialize in unique illumination and detection optical systems as well as in the application of interferometric techniques to medicine. Our outreach program in these areas includes:

We also provide advice and consulting services on laser systems for medical and cosmetic applications. Related sites on medicine and medical applications include:
