A True Light Amplifier - The First Laser
UNTIL now, no one has been able to take a light ray and amplify it thousands of times as we can with radio waves. Some attempts have been made using photomultiplier tubes and similar means, but the success has been limited and the amount of amplification possible by these methods small. Now, by modifying the Maser (see "The Amazing Masers" February, 1959 issue of Electronics Illustrated), Hughes Aircraft Company scientists have been able to produce an experimental light amplifier that treats light as if it were just a radio wave, which it really is.
Your High School CAN Produce Science Fair Winners
There is a secret to the pace-setting science high school. Your school may have it; you need it yourself. By Ken Gilmore NEW YORK's celebrated Bronx High School of Science has a spanking new modem building, well equipped laboratories, 2500 pre-selected, scientifically inclined students (each of whom has won out in fiercely competitive entrance examinations), and one out of five teachers is a Ph. D. It would be surprising if "Science, " as its students call it, didn't send finalists to the National Science Fair and the Westinghouse Talent Search, and if its students didn't win Armed Services scientific awards, scholarships, and honors of all kinds by the hundreds. It is, in a word, one of the finest scientific training grounds in the country.
How To Win At Science Fairs
by Ronald Benrey YOU CAN WIN at a Science Fair as long as one thing interests you more than winning does. This is your project itself. It is going to be judged on scientific thought, creative ability, and presentation. You will really have to know the field your project is concerned with. This takes effort. Since you lack the means of a professional laboratory, you will have to do much with little. This takes trial and error and just plain work. Your presentation must be attractive and clear.
