Condition: See description


FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE FIRST REPORT OF CONTINUOUS LASER ACTION IN PURE CARBON DIOXIDE. "Since its discovery, [Patel's] laser has grown to be one of the most powerful and useful radiation sources available" (Steinfield, Laser and Coherence Spectroscopy, 25). The Indian electrical engineer Chandra Patel joined Bell Labs in 1961 where he "began doing fundamental research in laser action in the pure rare gasses" (MIT Portal). This led to his 1963 discovery of the laser action on the vibrational-rotational transitions of carbon dioxide and his invention in 1964 [in this paper] "of efficient vibrational energy transfer between molecules, and the combination allowed him to invent the nitrogen carbon dioxide (CO2) laser --- the first gas laser to produce high power radiation continuously (ibid). Patel also showed that his "theory is applicable to both the linear polyatomic molecules and the diatomic molecules" (Patel). CONDITION & DETAILS: Original wraps. Lancaster: The American Physical Society. 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Archival quality rebacking at the spine. Light library stamp on the front wrap; barely visible numerical stamp on rear.
