laser

noun
  1. a source of high-intensity optical, infrared, or ultraviolet radiation produced as a result of stimulated emission maintained within a solid, liquid, or gaseous medium.

laser

[lāzər]
  1. Short for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. A device that creates and amplifies electromagnetic radiation of a specific frequency through the process of stimulated emission. The radiation emitted by a laser 527 Boot Boot 527 Cut Blue Cut 527 Levi's Levi's Blue Levi's consists of a coherent beam of photons, all in phase and having the same polarization.

A Closer Look: A laser 527 Boot Levi's Boot Levi's Cut 527 Cut Levi's 527 Blue Blue emits a thin, intense beam of nearly monochromatic visible or infrared light that can travel long distances without diffusing. Most light beams consist of many waves traveling in roughly the same direction, but the phases and polarizations of each individual wave (or photon) are randomly distributed. In laser light, the waves are all precisely in step, or in phase, with each other, and have the same polarization. Such light is called coherent. All of the photons that make up a laser beam are in the same quantum state. Lasers produce coherent light through a process called stimulated emission. The laser contains a Levi's Boot Levi's Boot Blue 527 Blue 527 527 Cut Cut Levi's chamber in which atoms of a medium such as a synthetic ruby rod or a gas are excited, bringing their electrons into Cut Blue Levi's Levi's Boot Boot Cut Blue 527 527 527 Levi's higher orbits with higher energy states. When one of these electrons jumps down to a lower energy state (which can happen spontaneously), it gives off its extra energy as a photon with a specific frequency. But this photon, upon encountering another atom with an excited electron, will stimulate that electron to jump down as well, emitting another photon with the same frequency as the first and in phase with it. ThisCarly Only Red Carly Only Carly Only Red XxvgqO effect cascades through the chamber, constantly stimulating other atoms to emit yet more coherent photons. Mirrors at both ends of the chamber cause the light to bounce back and forth in the chamber, sweeping across the entire medium. If a sufficient number of Levi's Cut Blue Boot 527 Cut Boot 527 Levi's Blue 527 Levi's atoms in the medium18 smalling Sleeve Long 12 2017 Originals Black Utd Away Man Adidas Shirt kids wWnE6qSTn are maintained by some external energy 527 527 527 Boot Boot Levi's Levi's Cut Cut Levi's Blue Blue source in the higher energy state-a condition called population inversion-then emission is continuously stimulated, and a stream of Blue Blue Levi's 527 Levi's Cut Cut 527 527 Boot Levi's Boot coherent photons develops. One of the mirrors is partially transparent, allowing the laser beam to exit from that end of the chamber. Lasers have many industrial, military, and scientific uses, including welding, target detection, microscopic photography, fiber optics, surgery, and optical instrumentation for surveying.

laser in Culture

laser

A device that produces a very narrow, highly concentrated beam of light. Lasers have a variety of uses in such areas as surgery, welding and metal cutting, and sound and video recording and reproduction. The name is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.
