The History of the Copper Vapor Laser
The first maser was discovered in P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute by
Alexander Prokhorov and Nicolay Basov.
The Nobel Prize in Physics "for fundamental work in the field of quantum electronics, which has led to the construction of oscillators and amplifiers based on the maser-laser
principle" was awarded jointly to
Charles Hard Townes from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),
Nicolay Gennadiyevich Basov from P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute and
Aleksandr Mikhailovich Prokhorov from P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute
The first self-heated copper vapor laser was designed in P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute by
Anatoly Isaev, Georgy Petrash, Mihail Kazarian.
The first commercial copper vapor laser with sealed-off tube was designed by NPO "ISTOK"
and P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute.
2500 sealed-off laser tubes and about 350 Copper and Gold vapor laser systems
have been produced in Russia.
