Due to high coherence, high intensity, laser beams have wide applications in various branches of science and engineering. Industrial applications. The laser beam is used to drill extremely fine holes in diamonds, hard sheets etc. They are also used for cutting thick sheets of hard metals and welding.
The laser beam is used to vapourize the unwanted material during the manufacture of electronic circuit on semiconductor chips. They can be used to test the quality of the materials.
Lasers For Industry - Amplitude
Medical applications. In medicine, micro surgery has become possible due to narrow angular spread of the laser beam. It can be used in the treatment of kidney stone, tumour, in cutting and sealing the small blood vessels in brain surgery and retina detachment. The laser beams are used in endoscopy.
Office of Science
It can also be used for the treatment of human and animalcancer. Scientific and Engineering applications. Since the laser beam can stay on at a single frequency, it can be modulated to transmit large number of messages at a time in radio, television and telephone. The semiconductor laser is the best light source for optical fiber communication. Concluding Remarks.
