From the idea to a versatile tool

What sounded like science fiction 60 years ago is now a technology that has become indispensable in our everyday lives. The first laser beam was generated in May 1960 and has developed into a high-tech tool with countless possible applications since its inception.

The laser beam consists of electromagnetic waves, hence the word LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a physical term. Lasers can be differentiated according to wavelength as well as energy used. Today the laser is used in a wide variety of industries and products. These include e.g. communication technology, measurement technology, in the medical field and not least as a processing tool.
