Caption: First helium-neon laser. Left to right: US physicist Donald R. Herriott (1928-2007), Iranian-US physicist Ali Mortimer Javan (born 1926) and US physicist William R. Bennett (1930-2008), with the first helium-neon laser. The laser (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) was developed in 1960 and laser technology is now used in many different areas, including medicine, telecommunications, the military, industry, and scientific research. There are thousands of types of laser, differing by the wavelength and methods used to produce the laser beam. This work was carried out at Bell Laboratories, USA, in 1960.Restrictions:
