    Dr. Hagop Injeyan to Speak on Laser Technology

    (Glendale, CA) - `Lasers, From Science Fiction to Reality' is the topic
    of the lecture hosted by the Armenian Engineers and Scientists of America
    (AESA). The presenter is Dr. Hagop Injeyan , a retired scientist from
    Hughes Aircraft and Northrop Grumman and an Adjunct Professor at PCC and
    CSULA. The lecture will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 7:30 pm in
    the library of the Armenian Society of Los Angeles, 117 South Louise
    Street, Glendale, CA 91205. The public is invited.

    A fixture in just about any science fiction movie or TV series since the
    early 20th century, lasers have become an integral part of everyday life
    from the CD/DVD players in our homes to entertainment, automobile warning
    devices and numerous sophisticated medical and industrial tools. This
    lecture will provide an overview of lasers through a brief discussion of
    the science behind lasers, the various types of lasers developed to date
    and an introduction to some of the more advanced applications of high power
    lasers focusing on laser fusion and laser weapon systems of the future. Laser
    fusion is widely (and sometimes wildly) thought of as the clean energy
    source of the future with an unlimited supply of fuel, while advanced laser
    weapons are anticipated to be game changers in the battlefield by providing
    an effective deterrent against highly destructive projectile based weapons
    such as missiles, artillery shells and mortars.

    Hagop Injeyan, during his 32 year career at Hughes Aircraft and Northrop
    Grumman, has worked on research and development of high power lasers for
    military and industrial applications. He is considered a leading expert in
    solid state lasers and while at Northrop Grumman was a key contributor to
    the development of the highest power solid state laser built to date. Dr.
    Injeyan earned B.S., M.S., in Physics and a PhD in Electrical Sciences and
    Engineering from University of California Los Angeles specializing in the
    field of Quantum Electronics. He has 26 patents in the field of lasers and
    non-linear optics, has authored numerous publications and conference
    presentations and is twice the recipient of NG's Chairman's Award for
    Innovation. He is also the co-editor and a co-author of a recently
    published Book by McGraw-Hill titled "High Power Laser Handbook".

    `We are very excited to have Dr. Injeyan a leading expert in laser
    technology field to talk about this technology which over the last five
    decades has become an integral part in nearly every aspect of our everyday
    life and can be found everywhere from high-tech research applications to
    scanners at the grocery store' said AESA Vice-President Vasken

    Established in 1983 in Glendale, California, AESA is a non-partisan and
    non-sectarian philanthropic organization focused primarily on addressing
    the professional, technical and scientific needs of fellow Armenian
    engineers, scientists, industrialists and architects throughout the world.
