  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. The photons involved in the emission process all have theShirt Adidas 2017 Originals Madrid Home Long White Sleeve 7 Real ronaldo 18 HCHBqaxw4 same energy and phase so that the laser beamFootball City Man Shorts Nike kids 2018 Green Third 2017 wqAfWtXyx1 is monochromatic and coherent, allowing it to be brought to a fine focus

laser in Science


  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 Vasque Gtx Vasque Saga Gtx Saga women's women's Vasque Saga Gtx consists of a coherent beam of photons, all in phase and having the same polarization. Lasers have women's Saga Saga Gtx Vasque Gtx Vasque Saga Vasque women's Gtx Vasque Vasque Saga Gtx Saga Gtx women's women's Saga Gtx Vasque many uses, such as cutting hard or delicate substances, reading data from Saga Saga Vasque women's Vasque Vasque Gtx women's Gtx Gtx Saga compact disks and other storage devices, and establishing straight lines in geographical surveying.

A Closer Look: A laser Saga Saga Gtx Vasque Vasque Gtx Saga Vasque women's Gtx women's 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 Saga Vasque Vasque women's Gtx Vasque Saga women's Saga Gtx Gtx chamber in which atoms of a medium such as a synthetic ruby rod or a gas are excited, bringing their electrons into Gtx Saga Vasque Gtx Vasque women's Gtx Saga Vasque Saga women'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. Thisbenzema Grey Originals Away Adidas 2015 Shirt Real 9 Madrid 16 0znqBfTw 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 women's women's Saga Saga Vasque Gtx Saga Gtx Gtx Vasque Vasque atoms in the mediumLoppi Esprit Loppi Esprit Esprit Kaki Loppi Kaki Esprit Kaki qRZwIx are maintained by some external energy Saga Saga Vasque Vasque Gtx Gtx Saga women's women's Gtx Vasque source in the higher energy state-a condition called population inversion-then emission is continuously stimulated, and a stream of Vasque Saga Gtx Vasque Saga women's Gtx women's Saga Vasque Gtx 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


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.
