ABSTRACT
The article discusses the development of the laser industry in Denmark. The first laser machine in the country was a carbon dioxide laser system that was installed in 1976. After the installation, more laser systems came in. By 2006, the number of laser systems in the country reached to about 350 to 400 and 50 percent of these are constituted by the carbon dioxide laser systems. This fast growth is attributed to the project collaborations and companies that centered on laser technology.
