Lasers are everywhere, but we rarely notice them. Today, lasers impact almost every aspect of life – from medicine to manufacturing, from communications to measurement, and from research and analysis to entertainment. They are used within industry to manufacture everything from computer chips and smartphones to clothing and cars.
This interactive exhibition shows you what a laser really is, and how they play a vital role in our daily lives. It features stunning images, animations and hands-on exhibits, including a walk-through of the Vulcan laser (used for fusion energy, and electron and ion acceleration).
