Robert Byer: solid-state laser pioneer
Winner of the inaugural SPIE Maiman Laser Award, Stanford professor Robert Byer is best known for his work in solid-state laser sources, including patenting the design of the green laser pointer. More recently he has been closely involved in the use of lasers to detect gravitational waves generated by distant cosmic collisions. Photo: Misha Bruk.
