Generated by stimulating radiation emissions, laser beams differ from ordinary light because they’re coherent. The spatial coherence keeps the laser beam narrow even over long distances. The temporal coherence keeps the beam in a narrow spectrum. Laser beams vary by the amount of energy they contain, and this determines what the laser can accomplish. Lasers…
