June 15, 2012


In 1960 Theodore Maiman developed, demonstrated and patented the first laser, using a pink ruby medium and a helical gas discharge flashtube for optical pumping, at the Hughes Research Laboratory. Following Maiman’s break-through, theoretical and experimental studies were carried out on the interaction of lasers with solid, liquid and gaseous materials. The ease with which […]
