The inventor of LASER was Theodore Maiman.  An experimental physicist, Maiman launched the ruby laser onto the world stage in 1960, and continued developing it and its uses in the decades since. 

He gained world recognition with awards such as the Wolf Prize, the Japan Prize, and induction into the Inventors' Hall of Fame.  In 2000 he authored The Laser Odyssey, which chronicles the years leading up to his invention, as well as describing his subsequent professional and personal journeys. 
Be gentle and you can be bold but also let people feel, the steadiness of your resentment;
be frugal and you can be liberal;
avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.
