Abstract

The measurements proposed above are made difficult mainly by the need for the right coherent sources. The experimental challenges of generating high-energy, tunable, picosecond or sub-picosecond, temporally synchronized, etc. pulses are formidable and may understandably frighten away many researchers. But there is no reason to believe that the development of the needed sources would not occur. On the contrary, there is every reason to be optimistic about future laser developments. After all, how many people would have predicted the present array of laser-based tools 25 years ago when the dye laser was first invented. So we not only thank Fritz Schaefer and Peter Sorokin for inventing the dye laser, but also for spawning the entire field that has evolved with, and consequent to, this seminal invention, and which continues to promote and inspire our scientific inquiries.
