The first working laser was demonstrated by Theodore Harold Maiman on May 16, 1960, and now we are celebrating it as the International Day of Light. We look back at the contributions of a laser luminary, marvel at todaty's laser reasearch, and look forward to the laser capabilities of the near future. Read More

On the Cover: High-energy hybrid femtosecond laser system demonstrating 2 × 10 PW capability
The image on the cover of High Power Laser Science and Engineering Volume 8, Issue 4, reports on a two-arm hybrid high-power laser system (HPLS) able to deliver 2 × 10 PW femtosecond pulses, developed at the Bucharest-Magurele Extreme Light Infrastructure Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) Facility. Provided by F. Lureau et al., researchers from Thales LAS France, Thales Systems Romania, Horia Hulubei National Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering and University of Bucharest, the image is based on the research presented in their article, "High-energy hybrid femtosecond laser system demonstrating 2 × 10 PW capability", High Power Laser Science and Engineering 8(4) 04000e43, doi DOI:10.1017/hpl.2020.41.
On the Cover: Long-distance ranging with high precision using a soliton microcomb
The image on the cover of Photonics Research Volume 8, Issue 12, indicates that laser-based light detection and ranging (lidar) plays a significant role in both scientific and industrial areas. However, it is difficult for existing lidars to achieve high speed, high precision, and long distance simultaneously. Here, a high-performance lidar based on a chip-scaled soliton microcomb (SMC) that can realize all three specialties simultaneously is demonstrated. Provided by J. Wang et al., researchers from Tianjin University, Xian Institute of Optics and Precision Mechanics, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and City University of Hong Kong, the image is based on the research presented in their article, "Long-distance ranging with high precision using a soliton microcomb", Photonics Research 8(12) 12001964, doi 10.1364/PRJ.408923.
