50 years of Laser Technology: Innovating Flow Cytometry by Blu-ray Technology
Masanobu Yamamoto, Chief Technical Communications Advisor, LE Business Development, Sony Corporation of America.
Abstract: Since the first Ruby laser oscillation in 1960, lasers have been applied into various fields in science and industry. Flow Cytometry is an important example of laser usage in the bio-science field. Optical storage devices such as the CD, DVD and Blu-ray Disc are examples of the successful application of lasers in the consumer electronics industry. The Optical storage industry has been created by the innovation and integration of laser light sources, micro-fabrication and optical technology. These technologies will migrate to the bio-science field. The synergies between bio-scientific needs and industrial photonic technology will be discussed.
