Lasers are used for a variety of applications in scientific, medical, industrial, and commercial fields.
Laser Spectroscopy: It is a branch of spectroscopy in which a laser is used to illuminate the sample being studied in order to determine a precise absorption spectrum.
Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy: These lasers can also be used as part of microscopes, although the manner in which an image is formed is very different from a conventional microscope. Confocal laser scanning microscopy, or CLSM, is a technique that reconstructs a three-dimensional rendition of the specimen.
Nuclear Fusion: Nuclear fusion is a type of nuclear reaction in which two smaller atomic nuclei combine to form a larger nucleus. Chains of these fusion reactions serve as the power source for stars, including the Sun.
Laser Surgery: The most commonly advertised type of laser surgery today uses an argon-fluoride excimer laser to reshape the lens of the eye to correct refractive defects that otherwise would require people to wear corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses. Refractive surgery techniques have become steadily more efficient and successful as our laser and computational technology have improved.
