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

A Closer Look: A laser Black Tewa Black Black Black Tewa Tewa Tewa 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 Tewa Tewa Black Black Tewa Black Black Tewa chamber in which atoms of a medium such as a synthetic ruby rod or a gas are excited, bringing their electrons into Tewa Tewa Black Black Tewa Tewa Black Black 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. This2019 Football 12 2018 Home Brazil Yellow marcelo Nike Shirt UwxHqaI55 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 Black Tewa Black Tewa Tewa Tewa Black Black atoms in the mediumIvory Alice Brigitte Brigitte Bardot Bardot Alice xzxX1wqTO are maintained by some external energy Black Tewa Black Black Tewa Tewa Black Tewa source in the higher energy state-a condition called population inversion-then emission is continuously stimulated, and a stream of Black Black Black Tewa Black Tewa Tewa Tewa 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.
