Basov and Aleksander Prochorov of Moscow and Charles Hard Townes of the Massachusetts Instilute of Tech nology Townes 49 and a native of Greenville SC will receive half of the prize for his pioneering research on the mas er beam in 1951 con ceived of the idea for the mas er which greatly amplifiei radio signals and has led to a revolulion in radio andphysics Townes and iis students at Columbia University also coin ed the word maser which means microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radia tion Basov 42 and Prochorov 48 will share the other half of the prize They are members of the Lebedev Institute for Physics of the Soviet Academy of Science The Nobel Committee of the Royal Swedish Academy of Science which chooses the phy sics winner cited the Soviet American trio for basic re search vifithin quantum electron ics which has fed to production V of oscillators and amplifiers according to the maserlaser principle The maser beam is a scien tific relative of the electrically operated laser development of which was announced independ ently by General Electric and the International Business Ma chine Corp in the United States two years ago Laser is short for light amplification by stim ulated emission of radiation Lasers are devices which emit pencilthin concentrated beams of red light all of one color or frequency As concentrated energy a laser can instantly burn a hole through a diamond Wilh less intense but equally precise aim it has welded detached ret inas of the human eye back in place A laser beam aimed at the moon spread out so bttle in the interval of nearly a quarter million miles that it lighted only a small area of the moon and the light bouncing back was detected on earth Lasers have been mentioned for possi ble use in burning out equip ment of enemy rocket missiles or spying satellites The possible uses of the laser are practically unlimited It is expected to revolutionize com munications in the future as well as have great importance to medicine To understand the function of the laser it is suitable first to look at the maser or microwave amplifier This can be a syn thetic rviby at which are radiat ed microwaves whereby Ihe electrons arc pumped up to a high level If weak radio signals are sent through the maser the elec trons fall back into their normal orbits and a strong wave leaves the maser instrument Scientisls say there is a pos sibilily that Ihe maser one day may he able to receive radio signals from intelligent beings in other solar systems British woman chemistry winner STOCKHOLM Sweden A woman
