A Review of Soviet Techniques in Laser Instrumentation for Medicine and Biology

  • Nikolai F. Gamaleya

Abstract

The first lasers appeared in the Soviet Union in 1960. Their production was based on the fundamental research in the field of quantum radiophysics by Basov and Prokhorov (Lenin and Nobel Prize winners) (Basov and Prokhorov, 1954; Basov et al., 1959, 1961) and other Soviet physicists. In 1963–1965 research into the biomedical applications of laser radiation was started, and the first attempts in development of laser systems especially for medical purposes were made.
