  • Description

    Recently the Soviet Union and the United States developed quantum optical generators better known as lasers.

    A laser ray can melt and evaporate the hardest of steels, tungsten or diamonds.

    Lasers are invaluable in science and technology.

    This is the Moscow Institute of Crystallography of the Soviet Academy of Sciences.

    It is here that the heart of lasers, ruby rods, are created.

    Institute researchers have been busy with problems of "growing" manmade heat-resistance crystals for the past few years, concentrating mostly on crystals of ruby for optical generators.

    This is the laboratory for high-temperature crystallization.

    Here is the installation for growing ruby rods of great length.

    It works on the Werneil method.

    Rubies are obtained in this centre also by the method of directed crystallization of zonal melting and other methods.

    Manmade crystals are obtained in this apparatus from a molten mass of some substances at a temperature of over 2,000 degrees Centigrade.

    A large collection of manmade crystals was recently shipped to the Montreal fair.
