I was just curious what the difference was between the consumer lasers that WL, and similar companies, sell and the lasers used for eye surgery, dentistry and laser hair removal. Can anybody please elaborate? Thanks.
Medical lasers are usually in the range of tens of watts and infrared. They also cost an incredible amount of money. Argon lasers from JDSU for use in DNA sequencers sell for $10-12,000 for the tube alone.
