Title: Applications of the laser

Abstract

For those not familiar with lasers, a review of lasers and some remarks on the fascinating new developments in such systems that do affect applications now and in the future are presented. Wave guides to transmit lasers to make them more flexible, the important aspects of measurements, chemistry, bits of botany, and holography are given. The vast expanse of communications, especially through the development of the new and important hybrid discipline of electrooptics is reviewed. The military and law and order programs show their applications; all initiate the study of actual applications. Then follow metalworking, construction, pollution, and a number of miscellaneous techniques. A critical review of safety programs so necessary for the proper development of laser technology is presented. Then follows the story of the applications in biology, medicine, dentistry, photography, art, and music. Many of the applications cross to other fields. To stimulate the youth to be interested in science, there are brief remarks about the social conscience in laser and, finally, the dreams of the future.
