Publication number: US20220022962A1
Application number: 17/499,310

Abstract:
A surgical laser tool (150) comprises an output member (162) that includes an output laser fiber (164), a probe tip (132), and electrical contacts (240). The probe tip is attached to a distal end (171) of the output laser fiber. Electromagnetic energy (102) transmitted through the output laser fiber is discharged through the probe tip. The electrical contacts are supported at a proximal end (169) of the output member.

Publication number: US20220029376A1
Application number: 17/499,062

Abstract:
A laser resonator includes a gain medium that produces light from pump energy and a variable light attenuator, which receives light and emits either (i) a first light including a continuous series of micropulses, or (ii) a second light including a series of macropulses at spaced time intervals, where each macropulse includes a series of micropulses. Each micropulse has a duration of 0.1 to 10 microseconds, and a duration of each macropulse is less than the time interval between each macropulse, and the micropulses have a frequency of 5 kHz to 40 kHz.
