Title: LIGHT GENERATING APPARATUS
Abstract:
A light generating apparatus that is capable of being coupled to a connector that supports the proximal end of a light diffusing fiber. According to one implementation the light generating apparatus includes a laser having a housing and a focus lens through which light generated by the laser is emitted. The apparatus also includes a heat removing metallic receptacle that has a first end that is thermally connected to the laser housing and a second end that is connectable to the light diffusing fiber connector. The metallic receptacle has an internal cavity that provides a direct line of sight between the focus lens of the laser and the proximal end of the light diffusing fiber when the connector is coupled to the second end of the metallic receptacle.
