We live in a world powered by light, but much of the understanding of light was developed around the time of the French Revolution. Before the 1950s, optics technology was viewed as well established and there was little expectation of growth either in scientific understanding or in technological exploitation. The end of the Second World War brought about huge growth in scientific exploration, and the field of optics benefited from that growth. The key event was the discovery of methods for producing a source of coherent radiation, with the key milestone being the demonstration of the first laser by Ted Maiman in 1960. Other lasers, nonlinear optical phenomena, and technologies such as holography and optical signal processing, followed in the early 1960s. In the 1970s the foundations of fiber optical communications were laid, with the development of low-loss glass fibers and sources that operated in the wavelength region of low loss.The 1980s saw the most significant technological accomplishment: the development of efficient optical systems and resulting useful devices. Now, some forty years after the demonstration of the first coherent light source, we find that optics has become the enabling technology in areas such as:
- information technology and telecommunications;
- health care and the life sciences;
- sensing, lighting, and energy;
- manufacturing;
- national defense;
- manufacturing of precision optical components and systems; and
- optics research and education.
We find ourselves depending on CDs for data storage, on digital cameras and printers to produce our family photographs, on high speed internet connections based on optical fibers, on optical based DNA sequencing systems; our physicians are making use of new therapies and diagnostic techniques founded on optics.
