Green or Argon Laser

The argon laser is a type of laser that produces a visible blue-green beam. The beam is made up of argon gas and has wavelengths of 488 nm and 514 nm. These wavelengths are absorbed selectively by hemoglobin, melanin, and other pigments that lie under the retina. The beam can be easily transmitted down a fiber optic bundle.
