Where Randomness Meets Subatomic Precision

In 1960, Theodore Maiman and co-workers created the world’s first laser. Working on the principle of Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, the beam produced by a laser is unique in that all the photons in the beam have both the same wavelength and the same phase. Because of this innocuous-sounding property, the humble… Continue reading Where Randomness Meets Subatomic Precision

Apologies that this is… Continue reading Workshop Log: King’s College London
