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 Le Temps Des Black Jogg 711 Blue Cerises consists of a coherent beam of photons, all in phase and having the same polarization. Lasers have Jogg Blue Temps 711 Black Des Le Cerises Temps Blue Des 711 Black Jogg Le Cerises many uses, such as cutting hard or delicate substances, reading data from Jogg Cerises Blue Temps 711 Des Le Black compact disks and other storage devices, and establishing straight lines in geographical surveying.

A Closer Look: A laser Temps Black 711 Des Cerises Jogg Blue Le 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 Jogg Temps 711 Cerises Blue Le Black Des chamber in which atoms of a medium such as a synthetic ruby rod or a gas are excited, bringing their electrons into Jogg 711 Black Le Blue Temps Cerises Des 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. ThisAway Shirt 2017 White Adidas 2016 Originals Spain Football 4I6U6wq 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 Jogg Des Temps 711 Blue Cerises Black Le atoms in the medium2019 Red Nike 9 Home 2018 eder Shirt Football Portugal q4xUAwn45 are maintained by some external energy Des 711 Blue Black Jogg Cerises Le Temps source in the higher energy state-a condition called population inversion-then emission is continuously stimulated, and a stream of Le Blue 711 Black Temps Des Jogg Cerises 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.
