Lasers in a New Light

27 September 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The laser was invented over fifty years ago but it continues to fascinate, impact our everyday lives and reveal new insights into the universe.

After reviewing the basic principles of laser operation Allister will discuss the amazing diversity of lasers and the broad range of applications. These include advanced manufacturing, communications, therapeutic and diagnostic medicine among many other areas. Laser technology continues to be used to explore fundamental science and will underpin emerging technologies.

Allister will conclude with a discussion on Scotland’s contribution to the laser industry.
