Abstract : The following Soviet lasers, presumably on exhibit at the Leipzig fair, are mentioned. A laser with 100-mv power attainable with one hundred millioneth part of a second: for detection of cosmic ships in space and for heating plasma. Laser GOR-100, with an unignited light ray that burns holes in steel plates. Razdan laser, operating continuously at 2 light pulses/sec. Laser OK-1, a ruby laser whose thousandth part of a second ray welds the unstuck retina of the eye. SU-1 device that microwelds the parts of precision apparatus that melt with difficulty. The Lucz-3 miniature semiconductive device that transforms solar light into electricity which in turn is transformed into amplifier laser light. The computer device at Manhasset in New York State computes from meteorological data the best routes for travel between Europe and America.
