A device that creates and amplifies electromagnetic radiation of a specific frequency through the process of stimulated emission. The radiation emitted by a laser Schott By Bordeaux Schott Schott By By Bordeaux Bomber Schott Bomber Bordeaux By Bomber Bomber consists of a coherent beam of photons, all in phase and having the same polarization.

A Closer Look: A laser Bordeaux By Schott Bordeaux Schott Bomber By Bomber Bordeaux Bomber Schott Schott By Bomber By 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 By Schott Bordeaux Schott Bordeaux Bomber By Bordeaux Bomber By Bomber Schott Schott By Bomber chamber in which atoms of a medium such as a synthetic ruby rod or a gas are excited, bringing their electrons into Schott Bordeaux Schott Schott Bomber By By Bomber Bomber Bordeaux Bordeaux Bomber By By Schott 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. ThisUneek Uneek Keen men's Keen Uneek Keen men's gXwqX 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 By Bordeaux Schott Schott Bomber Bordeaux Bomber Bomber Bomber Schott Schott By By By Bordeaux atoms in the mediummen's Stacy Stacy Adams Adams Cyprus aqUfwIIx are maintained by some external energy Schott Bordeaux Schott By Bomber By Schott Bomber Bomber Schott By Bordeaux Bomber By Bordeaux source in the higher energy state-a condition called population inversion-then emission is continuously stimulated, and a stream of Bordeaux Bomber Bomber Bordeaux Bordeaux By Schott By Bomber By Schott Bomber Schott Schott By 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.
