Paper Abstract

Introduction: Gary Forrest This year, because of the interest in solid state lasers in particular and its potential impact on dye lasers, we asked Peter Moulton of Schwartz Electro-Optics if he would address a combination of market and technology issues in this area. One of the fundamental questions is: Will the overall market increase for both dye lasers and the newer tunable solid state lasers that can be used in many applications? There are trade offs even now in terms of performance. It's those kinds of fundarriental issues that we've asked Peter to address. Peter Moulton: Introduction What I'd like to do today is discuss, from a qualitative, technological perspective, the effect that solid state lasers are going to have on the gas and dye laser narkets. I'm planning to review existing devices and then I will discuss some of the recent additions in areas of solid state. I'll also discuss what I think are some near term systexas that will appear soon as raarketable products, and then go further into the future with systeras that niay appear in the next five years. I'll get to the punchline at the end of the talk in terms of irapact, but this will all be very qualitative. I'nt not planning to discuss numbers or how I think the market dollar value and unit volume will change -- instead, I'll be focusing just on the technological impact.
