    Sad to have to bring the news of the passing of Dr. Ali Javan, inventor of the He-Ne gas laser we all know and love.

    Here is an interview I found from 1995, but can't find the reference. Also, the best pic I have of the first He-Ne laser head, designed by Donald Herriott.

    This is a press photo depicting the phone call mentioned in the interview above. Also, a laser communication demonstration set made in 1969 by General Telephone & Electronics, used to demonstrate this critical bit of modern technology.
