Looking back/Looking forward: Gas lasers: Durable survivors evolve new forms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Gas lasers generated the first CW beams and were the first to make holograms and weld metals. For decades they owned the visible spectrum. Now they play vital roles in medicine and photolithography—and the latest gas lasers operate in hollow optical fibers.
