Designed to give readers a sense of wonder through its recounting of the development of lasers and the ways in which they are used, Lasers, New Edition shows how the scientists and engineers who invented lasers created them as a means of pursuing a scientific theory and then had to figure out what to do with them.

Leading students and general readers through the amazing complexities of the world of lasers, this volume answers basic questions about the science and technology of lasers, as well as modern uses in medicine, industry, research, communications, and the military.

  • Giving Light a Workout
  • Illuminating Science Anew
  • The New Power Tools
