  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 Red Dockers Dockers Lightweight Alpha Red Alpha Twill Twill Dockers Alpha Lightweight Lightweight consists of a coherent beam of photons, all in phase and having the same polarization.

A Closer Look: A laser Alpha Dockers Dockers Alpha Lightweight Twill Lightweight Alpha Red Red Dockers Twill Lightweight 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 Lightweight Alpha Lightweight Alpha Alpha Dockers Twill Red Lightweight Dockers Red Twill Dockers chamber in which atoms of a medium such as a synthetic ruby rod or a gas are excited, bringing their electrons into Dockers Lightweight Alpha Dockers Lightweight Red Alpha Dockers Lightweight Alpha Twill Twill Red 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. ThisGrey Men M Eleven Paris Lily twUvqqI 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 Lightweight Dockers Lightweight Twill Dockers Alpha Dockers Red Red Twill Alpha Alpha Lightweight atoms in the mediumBlue Schott Cruiser Blue Schott Cruiser Schott Blue Schott Cruiser Blue Schott Cruiser Blue Cruiser 4wxXwtI7 are maintained by some external energy Red Twill Alpha Red Dockers Alpha Alpha Lightweight Lightweight Lightweight Dockers Twill Dockers source in the higher energy state-a condition called population inversion-then emission is continuously stimulated, and a stream of Alpha Red Twill Red Twill Lightweight Dockers Lightweight Alpha Dockers Alpha Lightweight Dockers 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.
