Paper Abstract

I was asked to speak on scientific laser trends and to do that I've organized niy talk today into two parts. The first part I was asked to talk a little bit about the markets, so we're going to talk a little bit about the niarkets for lasers in scientific applications. To discuss the iTarket, I've drawn on two sources for numbers, the R&D inarketplace survey that David Kales conducted that's published in the January 1991 issue of Laser Focus World and the study that we sponsored with Foresight Technology to study the federal funding for scientific R&D. I picked two areas of scientific R&D in the federal study to highlight, NASA because of the importance of lasers to NASA operations and then NSF because the National Science Foundation is the prinary source of niost funds for academic R&D in the States.
