    An application of hollow waveguide delivered infrared free electron laser (FEL) was investigated. The laser produced macro pulses of 5 μs duration at a repetition rate of 30 Hz. Each macro pulse consisted of a train of 1 ps micropulses repeating at 3 GHz. By tuning the laser wavelength to the absorption peaks of the tissue or molecular, the optimum wavelength for specific laser-tissue interaction can be identified. Results of the investigation showed that by using hollow waveguide delivery system, the infrared FEL is suitable for the intraocular microsurgical applications.
