You know what a laser is all about. Do you?
As scientists, lasers are our daily business. We will talk about the past,
present and future of what is typically referred to as a laser. Let’s start
our journey at the birth of laser light and illustrate its way through to
what lasers are capable of today apart from pointing at presentation slides.
It will become evident that lasers are present in our daily life, at work,
the internet and science all around the world.
But let’s not stop with what we already understand, where the laser takes us
today; let's have a short glimpse of what to expect in the future as well.
