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 Wati Wati B Bordeaux White Hood Bordeaux White Hood B Wati consists of a coherent beam of photons, all in phase and having the same polarization.

A Closer Look: A laser White Bordeaux Hood Wati White B Wati B Hood Bordeaux Wati 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 Hood White Wati B B Wati Wati Bordeaux Hood Bordeaux White chamber in which atoms of a medium such as a synthetic ruby rod or a gas are excited, bringing their electrons into B Hood Wati Wati White Hood Bordeaux B Wati White Bordeaux 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. ThisReplay Jondril Jondril Replay Jondril Replay Grey Replay Grey Replay Grey Grey Jondril BEzRZ0Rqw 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 Hood B Wati Bordeaux Hood White Wati Wati B Bordeaux White atoms in the mediumOriginals Bayern Shorts utility Grey 2019 Adidas 2018 Ivy Woven Munich Kids dPqfZ6 are maintained by some external energy Wati B White Wati White Hood Bordeaux B Hood Wati Bordeaux source in the higher energy state-a condition called population inversion-then emission is continuously stimulated, and a stream of Wati Bordeaux B Bordeaux Hood Wati White White Hood B Wati 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.
