Summary of "Tailoring lens functionality by 3D laser printing."

Conversion of a Gaussian beam into a top-hat beam or to an annular beam is demonstrated using 3D direct laser printing. Micron-scale refractive phase elements were designed and printed directly on standard commercially available lenses. These structures modify the phase of the incoming beam into either three intensity-flattened profiles, having line, square, or circular shapes, or to an annular beam profile. This method to functionalize lenses opens new and exciting opportunities for compact and robust beam shaping, as well as for reduction of the aberrations of the lens itself.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A 3D printing technology where a computer-controlled moving laser beam is used to build up the required structure, layer by layer, from liquid POLYMERS that harden on contact with laser light (photopolymerization).

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.

Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.

Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
