Abstract

The laser opened two wide new channels for optics, one concerning development of more and better lasers, one concerning the laser as tools for new research and as components for new techniques. Two trends, one resulting from each channel, are examined. The reaction of the physics community to the importance of these events is pointed up by the recent APS-NYS meeting, which is reviewed briefly.
