From one of the most imaginative and daring scientific minds of this or any century comes a thoughtful, almost intimate account of a personal journey through his momentous discoveries - achievements that have changed the face of medicine, industry, even weapons. Nobel laureate Charles H. Townes, inventor of the maser and co-inventor, with Arthur Schawlow, of the laser, takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of his unique - and startlingly productive and creative - way of working. Along the way, you'll learn about how Townes came upon his surprising findings and how he managed to avoid obstacles in his path. Townes introduces us to the wonders of the universe, from the submicroscopic, most minute - the workings of atoms and the even smaller particles that make them up - to the vast outer reaches of space. His tour takes us along paths Townes pioneered: quantum electronics, microwave spectroscopy and the frontiers of our galaxy where he explored the dark, rarefied clouds of gas and dust where new stars form. Recognizing that some of the most revolutionary recent scientific theories about how the universe emerged come close to religious thought, these accessible essays conclude with a uniquely personal coda in which Townes suggests that science and religion occupy the same terrain
Amazing light : a volume dedicated to Charles Hard Townes on his 80th birthday ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
This Festschrift is a collection of essays contributed by students, colleagues and admirers of Charles Townes, who shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1964 for "fundamental work in the field of quantum electronics, which has led to the construction of oscillators and amplifiers based on the laser-maser principle." The contributions to this volume reflect Townes's wider interests and influence, ranging from quantum optics to astrophysics, and from electrical engineering to medicine. The broadly international character of the contributions reflects Townes's deep belief in the international character of science, as well as the breadth of the impact his work and teaching have had. The contributors include nine Nobel laureates. Arthur Shawlow provides the introductory biographical essay. Each of the chapters has been carefully edited to provide a consistency of presentation, while preserving the individuality of the authors

Annual Technical Report on ONR Grant N00014-96-1-0737 for the Support of Infrared Spatial Interferometry ( Book )
5 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Recent upgrades of the 10 micron interferometer have during 1997 been fully programmed, tested, and used. They provide improved tracking and stronger signals, and have been extensively used for new stellar measurements. Multiple shells around several stars have been found and analyzed, and movements or other changes with time are seen in the dust shells around some stars. Methods for compensating atmospheric fluctuations have been examined, and measurements of the vertical distribution of turbulence have been made with acoustic radar
