When I hit the google front page, I almost leaped for joy.

I’m not really sure when the birthday of the laser really is. Anybody know whether a single date is even relevant? Weren’t there classified projects that predated Maiman’s work? What about the MASER?

  1. ilya, i just asked the same question this morning: why doesn’t the maser count as the first laser? why does only the “optical maser” count?

  2. Maybe google operates on the “if I can’t see it, it isn’t real” principle.
