Abstract:

The bibliography of laser applications contains 644 entries from the open literature for the period 1961 through September 1966. The entries are divided into the following major areas mechanical measurements and standards communications applications radar and tracking applications military applications optical signal processing interferometry and testing of optical components applications to scientific studies applications in chemistry photographic applications metalworking and miscellaneous applications. The entries are further subdivided into 78 other categories. Applications in medical and biological research are not included complete coverage in the other areas is not guaranteed. Under some topics detection techniques, spectroscopy, interaction with acoustic waves, plasma diagnostics, nonlinear optics, gas breakdown, scattering, holography so much has been published that only review articles, articles of major importance, and very recent articles could be included.
