Laser is now one of the most advanced technologies in the world and its increasing development process is very stunning. The wide range of applications of this technology in various fields of industry, medicine, military, etc. has made this technology of great strategic importance today. 15 years ago, Iran established the National Center for Laser Science and Technology as a strategic center and provided the necessary platform for research and development of laser-related science and technology to localize this technology and meet the basic needs of the country, to where Iran is now one of the top 10 countries in the world in the field of laser technology and has published the highest level of scientific articles in the field of laser in the region.
But despite these achievements, unfortunately, the technological products of laser production in Iran have not yet been significantly commercialized, so that Iran is not only an exporter of laser products, but also a high percentage of lasers consumed in the country are imported!
