By Richard C. Lewontin
Following within the model of Stephen Jay Gould and Peter Medawar, one of many world's best scientists examines how "pure science" is in truth formed and guided through social and political wishes and assumptions.

The emission quantum efficiencies are close to unity [76, 100]; also the laser efficiency is concentration dependent, as was shown in a recent detailed investigation . The W emW -product is about 8 u 10–22 cm–2s–1 and thus about 5-6 times higher than for Ti3+:Al2O3. The ratio between the emission bandwidth and the central emission wavelength, 'O / O peak , is a measure for the ability to generate ultra short pulses in the mode-locked operation regime; the higher this value, the shorter the pulses.
