Descriptive films on the topics of light and lasers have been produced by the Berthold Leibinger Stiftung with the generous support of the TRUMPF Group.
Today, the laser is synonymous with innovation and progress. It is impossible to imagine our everyday lifes without laser technology: compact data storage media such as CDs and DVDs, fast data transmission via fiber optics, high-precision production technology and advanced laser medicine are just a few examples. The laser exerts an enormous fascination on many people. The film shows the history of the laser from the basic idea to its development as an effective instrument in various areas of application.
