pulsed dye laser


pulsed dye laser
a dye laser in which excitation of the dye by pulses of intense light from a flashlamp produces a beam in the yellow visible light spectrum with a wavelength of 577 or 585 nm, with alternating on and off phases of a few microseconds each; used to decolorize pigmented lesions.
