The Complicated History of How Lasers Were Invented

On May 16, 1960, Theodore Maiman shined a high-powered light at a ruby partially coated with silver and the result was the world's first laser. This groundbreaking device, however, was not created by a single genius in isolation. Rather, it was the result of many brilliant minds sharing ideas . . . at least until it was time to divvy up the profits.

The story is too old to be commented.
