LASER

Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation

Laser

Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. In fibre optics, laser diodes are widely used as light emitters, especially in singlemode and long haul systems. Light from laser diodes covers only a narrow band of wavelengths so that dispersion caused by differing light velocities in an optical fibre is substantially reduced.

LASER

Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Usually referring to laser sights. These project a visible point of light (usually red or green) onto a target. Yet another reason the Americans are wrong to spell it 'Lazer'. It doesn't make any sense!

Laser

The word laser was originally an abbreviation for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers have countless applications, many in medicine and communications. Lasers produce light which is monochromatic, coherent and tightly focussed. Lasers are used in the technique of photocoagulation (used to treat retinae)
