The Vanderbilt free-electron laser (FEL) is a continuously tunable source of pulsed, mid-infrared radiation. FEL applications research has been underway for a decade. Recent experimental advances in FEL ablation of soft tissue indicate the potential for FEL-based protocols in surgery and medicine. In anticipation of these medical applications, the Vanderbilt FEL is being upgraded to meet the reliability and performance standards for a medical laser. Facilities for laser surgery have been constructed and equipped and medical delivery systems are being developed for pre-clinical and clinical research
