Résumé:
In How the Laser Happened, Nobel laureate Charles Townes provides a highly personal look at some of the leading events in twentieth-century physics.

Townes was co-inventor of the maser, of which the laser is one example; an originator of spectroscopy using microwaves; and a pioneer in the study of gas clouds in galaxies and around stars.

This memoir traces his multifaceted career from its beginnings on the family farm in South Carolina.

Spanning decades of ground-breaking research, the book provides a hands-on description of how working scientists and inventors get their ideas. It also gives a behind-the-scenes look at the scientific community, showing how scientists.

Respond to new ideas and how they approach a variety of issues, from priority and patents to the social and political implications of their work.

In addition, Townes touches on the sociology of science, uncovering some of the traditions and values that are invisible to an outsider.  Lire la suite...
