Abstract

This is the last issue of 2015, which UNESCO declared to be a year of light and light-based technologies. We plan to carry a survey of the technological marvels of light in the next issue – we ran out of space and time to do it here! But we did manage to feature Charles Townes, one of the pioneers of the laser which is so much part of our lives, on the back cover. He was a towering figure during the early development of quantum optics, but also made a major impact on the study of molecules in space.
