DescriptionThe laser (an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) provides a source of intense optical radiation. This energy can be focused to a very small diameter. At even moderate power levels, therefore, the energy at the focal point is sufficient to vaporize most materials.
