Barton Lab Meets with Optics Pioneer

Jennifer Barton's lab team enjoyed dinner with Charles Townes, inventor of the maser and the first to publish the theory of the laser, on April 16, 2010. Townes was a special guest at the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery 30th Annual Conference, which Barton co-chaired. He took some time from his busy schedule to share his perspective on the past and future of laser with Barton and students Jen Watson, Amy Winkler, Andrew Wall and Amber Luttman.
