A century of fundamental physics research has appeared in the Physical Review. Such research is the seed corn of the technological harvest that sustains modern society.

Physics Today 46 (10), 28–31 (1993); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.881380

The first paper reporting an operating laser was rejected by Physical Review Letters in 1960. Now lasers are a huge and growing industry, but the pioneers' chief motivation was the physics.

Physics Today 46 (10), 34–38 (1993); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.881381

Fundamental research in glass science, optics and quantum mechanics has matured into a technology that is now driving a communications revolution.

Physics Today 46 (10), 40–43 (1993); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.881382

Branches of this fruitful tree led to masers, radiofrequency spectroscopy, the frequency standard and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging.

Physics Today 46 (10), 46–50 (1993); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.881383

Basic research on assemblies of nuclear gyromagnetic moments led to powerful techniques for studying molecular structure and solid lattices—and to a modern medical diagnostic tool.

Physics Today 46 (10), 52–56 (1993); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.881384

It took half a century to understand Kamerlingh Onnes's discovery, and another quarter‐century to make it useful. Presumably we won't have to wait that long to make practical use of the new high‐temperature superconductors.

Physics Today 46 (10), 59–62 (1993); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.881385

Researchers and technologists have grappled with semiconductors for more than 50 years, and their labors have had a revolutionary impact on science and society.

Physics Today 46 (10), 64–68 (1993); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.881365

The revolutionary creation of new materials with controlled properties via nanostructuring is making possible a wide variety of technological advances.

Physics Today 46 (10), 70–73 (1993); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.881366

In 1932 Ernest Lawrence and Stanley Livingston envisaged a device for basic research on the atomic nucleus; today modern versions of their device provide healing radiations at many medical centers.
