Beginnings of a Laser Museum

May 14, 2022
I was at Photonics West in San Francisco this week and met up with Joe Dallarosa (decades at Coherent, then IPG Photonics) in his booth promoting his newly formed non-profit "laser-museum.org". We met in the mid-'80s through a mutual friend, and I made a hologram for him then. 40 years later and we reconnect through shared interests in the preservation of laser history and stimulating youth to choose photonics for their career. I represent the "brick & mortar" side of things, and his group can cover the corporate side. Time will tell if we can merge to really get the ball rolling.
