Let there be light: the laser and its applications
This lecture will seek to separate the science from the popular science fiction image of the laser. Although the laser was invented in 1960 (exactly 25 years ago), laser research is still in the headlines thanks to the Reagan administration's Star Wars Programme. The laser is also the basis of healthy industry. More than 100 companies around the world manufacture lasers, and hundreds more build components, accessories or systems that incorporate lasers. Sales of commercial and military systems reached $4.4 billion last year and sales of manufactured lasers passed $400 million
