Caption: First argon-fluoride pumped laser, 1975. US researchers Gary C. Tisone (left) and A. Kay Hays (right) with the first pumped argon-fluoride (ArF) laser. The pumping was done with an electron beam. The acronym LASER stands for 'light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation'. The laser 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 took place in 1975 at Sandia National Laboratories, USA.Restrictions:
