IfM laser lab to feature in BBC documentary
A BBC film crew filmed a series of laser demonstrations today for a new documentary featuring Professor Robert Winston.
The IfM's Centre for Industrial Photonics is providing close up views of lasers in action for the BBC One show Robert Winston's Top Ten Advances.
The show sees Professor Winston take a look at his top 10 scientific advances of the last half century. The laser is currently celebrating it's 50th anniversary and will be one of the featured stories in the hour long show.
The programme, currently due to be broadcast next month, will look at how these scientific innovations helped to change the world and potential future applications.
- You don't have to wait until April to see lasers in action. IfM Laser Fest takes place on March 20th as part of the Cambridge Science Festival.
