Abstract

Lasers are rapidly getting cheaper, smaller and better. CD, DVD and BluRay players all brought lasers to use for our entertainment. In science, amazing laser imaging techniques were recognised with the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2014. In manufacturing, low cost laser cutting machines are increasingly available in small companies, universities and even schools.
