ABSTRACT
Kastler, Alfred (1902-1984) was a French physicist who won the 1966 Nobel Prize in physics for his discovery and development of optical methods for studying Hertzian resonances within atoms. His discoveries and new methodologies for measuring weak magnetic fields were the basis for the subsequent development of masers and lasers.
