THE MAN BEHIND THE DIGITAL LASER

“Knowledge is power and by involving more people in science, we can advance our country and change the world.”

- Dr Sandile Ngcobo

This CSIR scientist has been designing lasers for the past 10 years. As part of the team that developed the world’s first digital laser, he helped make it possible, for the first time, to change the shape of a laser beam at the push of a button. He was also part of the team that designed a high-powered laser in rectangular symmetry, with the highest output power in the world.

Bright young scientists behind ideas that work.
