Virtual Special Issue for the 60th Anniversary of the Laser's Invention

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. This page collects the laser articles published by CLP Press in recent years, which are classified by categories. We look back at the contributions of a laser luminary, marvel at today's laser research, and look forward to the laser capabilities of the near future.
