How Lasers Work

A Laser light can be distinguished by its properties compared to other light emitting sources.

How the laser functions in terms of theory and the involvement of the components.

The application of lasers in three areas, providing examples of improvements of improvement in existing principles and new innovations.
Figure 1 Characteristics of a Laser
Properties of Lasers
Lasers can be distinguished through their properties including:


shown in Figure 1.

Coherency is a term that is use to describe the identical phases of laser light.
A monochromatic light is comprised of a single colour or wavelength.
A light traveling in one singular direction or a concentrated beam is a property known as collimation.
1st Stage: Pumping
Where power is supplied to an exterior light source, such as a flash lamp, which conceals the solid element in its light. This light is then absorbed by the lasing medium (Hecht 2008, p.6; McComb 1988 p.3).

A pumping device is used to raise the atoms to a high-energy state from the ground state by transferring light energy to the atoms.
2nd Stage: Stimulation
Photons collide with the high-energy. This forms new photons that are the exact duplication of the initial photon, which were disassociated during the impact of collision (McComb 1988, p.2; Csele 2004, p.91; Renk 2012, p.226).

This chain reaction effect of reproducing the original photon is called, stimulation emission of radiation (Csele 2004, p.91).
3rd Stage: Decaying State
As a result, the numbers of photons increase, while the atoms energy levels gradually reduce.
4th Stage: Light Amplification
The solid will absorb specific wavelengths of the light spectrum emanated from the light source, empowered by the light amplification process. McComb (1988, p.2) explains, light amplification is a process when photons are absorbed by the lasing medium, which then travels inside the optical resonant cavity reflecting from the mirrors.

Consequently the photons collide with excited high-energy atoms. As a result, this releases more photons, constituting light amplification.
5th Stage: Emission of laser beam
Finally the laser emits a light beam, in the case of the ruby laser, a red beam is emitted (McComb 1988, p.3).

Laser technology has advance the construction industries that can be divided into two ways. First, is the new innovations that lasers has enabled to create such as the laser level. The second advance is the improvement of existing principles such as material processing.
