File: Wolfson Research Unit:High Power Lasers and Fibre Optics

Scope and Content

During the 1970s and 1980s the Wolfson Foundation supported several University research projects, which were concerned with industrial applications of research work. This routine file relates to a project on lasers and fibre optics within the Department of Physics, which was awarded £160,000 for three years in 1985. The project was run by Dr Terry King, and focussed on using lasers for surgical techniques.
