Tuesday’s seminar will feature Jon Singer, the Resident Researcher of the Joss Research Institute. Jon often works with (and sometimes builds) lasers. He will discuss laser basics:  what lasers are, what they aren’t and how they work.  He’ll also briefly talk about various types of lasers, and will cover some aspects of DIY nitrogen lasers and organic dye laser design and construction. The talk will be very shiny, with at least two demos. Hope he can help me (timball) debug my dead violet diode.

In laser related news, check out the awesome Blu-Ray laser that  CCCKC member hevnsnt put together out of old parts!  So cool, it got featured on i-hacked.
