SPIE Video Series Celebrates the Laser
January 21, 2010

SPIE celebrates the laser.

The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) has launched a new series of video interviews with leaders in laser technology, as part of the international optics and photonics society’s celebration of the 50th anniversary this year of the invention of the laser. The first laser was demonstrated by its inventor, Theodore Maiman, on May 16th 1960 at Hughes Research Labs in Malibu, Calif.

In the SPIE Advancing the Laser video series, leaders in current laser research and development talk about new advances and the technology’s history. The collection of 5- to 7-minute video interviews can be viewed online in the SPIE Newsroom Advancing the Laser video page. The interviews include Rox Anderson and Joshua Bienfang. At least one new video in the series will be posted each week.

SPIE has organized a display honoring laser legends and luminaries, an exhibit of more than 80 laser devices, and other anniversary tribute activities during the Society’s Photonics West symposium in San Francisco, running January 23rd-28th. You can find more information at the Advancing the Laser website
