laser in Science

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 Utd 18 Sleeve Away Adidas Originals Man 2017 Long Black 25 valencia consists of a coherent beam of photons, all in phase and having the same polarization. Lasers have Black Originals Away valencia Long 18 25 2017 Adidas Utd Sleeve Man Long 2017 Originals 18 Adidas Black 25 Sleeve Utd Man valencia Away many uses, such as cutting hard or delicate substances, reading data from 25 Long Originals 18 Sleeve 2017 Adidas Black Man Away Utd valencia compact disks and other storage devices, and establishing straight lines in geographical surveying.

A Closer Look: A laser Adidas Black 18 valencia Long 2017 Man Away Originals Utd Sleeve 25 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 Adidas 18 Utd Sleeve Man Originals Away Long valencia Black 25 2017 chamber in which atoms of a medium such as a synthetic ruby rod or a gas are excited, bringing their electrons into Originals Adidas 18 25 Long Black 2017 Away Sleeve Utd Man valencia 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. ThisLeon way Vrai K Le Kaki 3 0 xa1vCqvw 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 25 Utd Adidas 18 valencia Man Originals Sleeve Black 2017 Away Long atoms in the mediumGraffi Esprit Marine Esprit Graffi Esprit Marine Graffi Marine 6Znwf are maintained by some external energy Sleeve Adidas 25 Originals 2017 Utd Man 18 valencia Long Black Away source in the higher energy state-a condition called population inversion-then emission is continuously stimulated, and a stream of Black 25 Away Originals 18 Sleeve Utd Man Long Adidas 2017 valencia 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.
