Re: [PanoToolsNG] Re: The shape of cameras to come...
- No prob Trausti, but lasers don't "detect" any more than a flashlight
could detect. They only emit electromagnetic radiation that can be
over a wide range frequencies, depending on the lasing material. Some
can be tuned to over a range of frequencies. The free-electron laser
can be tuned to emit anything from microwaves to x-rays. [More
trivia: While I was in grad school at Duke, John Madey, inventor of
the free-electron laser, was recruited to move his FEL lab from
Stanford to Duke. Mega$$ research grants! After being forced out as
director, there were huge patent lawsuits between Madey and Duke that
went all the way to the Supreme Court of the US.]
You can think of lasers as a kind of very, very special flashlight 8-)

- So maybe you met my father Mario Vascon somewhere in CERN, in the
accelerator in Geneve, between 70ies or 80ies....??? Depending on how
old are you!
