What is a laser? The word is actually an acronym which is in Serbian and English language has become a noun. In the English language even exists in the form of the verb - "to lase". The acronym is derived from the definition of practical.
Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Now you probably understand why the acronym came into use. The loose translation of light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Now everything is clear.
Characteristics of laser light
The light produced by lasers is far more monochromatic, more direct, stronger and more coherent than any obtained from any source.
Monochrome - your light from one source is of the same wavelength (and therefore the same color). The wavelength of the laser light, each determined by the amount of energy released when an electron transition to a lower energy level.
Coherent - all photons are moving in one direction.
Directional - laser beam is focused to a single point so that the high intensity, as opposed to say, the light that comes from a light bulb that has been dispersed and of low intensity.
Because of these characteristics for the laser beam we can precisely control and use of the different purposes. Also for engraving - laser engraving. Precision that is achieved when etching is about "two hundredth," said artisan language, or to clarify an inch is divided into 50 parts. When you cut into a cut which is about 0.15 mm.
It should also be noted that different types of lasers differ in these characteristics as well as the wavelength, size, efficiency. There is no laser that is suitable for all purposes but some particular combinations of characteristics can be to do things that were before the advent of lasers were impossible. They are custom products and their use is really tight.
Laser systems that Aspen has been designed for fine engraving, precision cutting and marking of different materials.
