Selective laser sintering (SLS) is an additive manufacturing (AM) technique that uses a laser to fuse together small particles of plastic, metal, or ceramic powder into a three-dimensional (3D) object.
A dye laser is a laser that uses an organic dye as its gain medium. The dye is usually dissolved in a solvent, such as ethanol, and is pumped by a laser beam to produce laser action. The wavelength of the laser light is determined by the properties of the dye, and can be tuned by changing the dye.
Argon-ion lasers are a type of gas laser that uses an argon plasma to produce light. The first argon-ion laser was built in 1964 by William Bridges at the Hughes Research Laboratories.
A helium–neon laser is a gas laser using helium and neon as the active medium. The output of a helium–neon laser is a coherent beam of visible light with a wavelength of 632.8 nm, which is in the red region of the visible spectrum.
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to treat various conditions and injuries. The laser light is applied directly to the skin, which allows it to penetrate deep into the tissue. This type of therapy has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of conditions, including pain relief, wound healing, and reducing inflammation.
CO2 lasers are the most commonly used type of laser in industry and are used in a variety of applications including cutting, welding, and engraving.
405nm lasers are a type of near ultraviolet (UV) laser that can be used to excite fluorescence in a wide range of molecules. When this type of laser light is shone on certain materials, they will emit light at a different wavelength in a process known as fluorescence.
Lasers are increasingly being used in dentistry as technology advances. Lasers can be used for a variety of dental procedures, including teeth whitening, cavity detection, and even tooth removal.
A diode pumped solid state (DPSS) laser is a type of solid state laser that uses an optical diode to pump a solid gain medium.
Semiconductor laser diodes are light-emitting devices that are used in a wide range of applications, including fiber-optic communications, data storage, and biomedical imaging.
