Forums and Newsgroups
There are a number of other forums, bulletin boards and
newsgroups that would be of interest to laserists. Here are some
Alt.lasers - The USEnet discussion board for
everything and anything related to lasers. Discussions vary from
scientific principals and theories, to the details of constructing your
own lasers, to laser cutting equipment, to laser light show topics [and
a few off topic posts as well].
This forum is accessible through a web based interface at Google
Sci.optics - The USEnet discussion board for
optics and optical phenomena. There is infrequent discussion of
lasers in this forum as they are usually cross posted to alt.lasers.
This forum is accessible through a web based interface at
