Website Detail Page

published by the Lucent Technologies
This page from Bell Laboratories gives a brief overview of their new technology, the quantum cascade laser. The quantum cascade laser is a very small, very powerful type of laser that may one day be used in remote sensing research and police breathalyzers. The article is displayed as several small slides, each with an illustration.
