Laser Science Projects

Selected Laser Related Web Sites

    Here is a short of list of  web sites which provide information about lasers that may be useful in researching your laser science project:

Laser Institute of America [LIA]
LIA Safety Bulletin Logo     This site provides a Laser Safety Bulletin that has been prepared by LIA's Laser Safety Committee to educate new laser users on the concerns and issues related to laser safety.  There is also a very useful page on Laser Pointer Safety (which is also reproduced in our Laser Safety pages).
University of Waterloo
U of W safety office logo         The Laser Safety Manual used at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.  It gives a great deal of detail about various kinds of lasers.  The 'Laser Fundamentals' section gives a lot of scientific detail on how laser light is generated and has diagrams of the lasing process.
The "Laser Adventure " by Rami Arieli
The Laser Adventure     A site with a scientific orientation that contains details on the theory and operation of lasers and scientific terminology relating to lasers.  It also includes a number of experiments you can perform with lasers using simple apparatus that you can build yourself.
Laserium 
Laserium Logo     Home page of Laserium, the company that started laser shows. There are some very beautiful images from their shows in the Laserium Image Gallery.
The Invention of the Laser
The patent for the laser     This series of web pages on the Bell Labs site discuss the invention of the laser.  The invention of the laser, which stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation, can be dated to 1958 with the publication of the scientific paper, Infrared and Optical Masers, by Arthur L. Schawlow, then a Bell Labs researcher, and Charles H. Townes, a consultant to Bell Labs.  That paper, published in Physical Review, the journal of the American Physical Society, launched a new scientific field and opened the door to a multibillion-dollar industry.  A picture of the patent document for the laser is shown at the left.
The LaserNet Homepage
    The homepage of Rockwell Laser Industries who are involved in laser safety services, laser consulting and laser education.
Laser Focus World
Laser Focus World logo     The home page of the magazine Laser Focus World a monthly magazine covering mostly scientific and industrial applications of lasers.
Photonics Spectra
    Photonics Spectra is a monthly magazine for commercial, industrial and scientific laser applications.
