Βasic principles of metal processing using LASERS


This paper analyzes the basic definition of light in physics, the mechanics of how it is transmitted through space, as well as how much energy it can convey, what are the laws that allow but at the same time limit its exploitation by modern engineering. Also, quantum mechanics basic principles are being presented along with definitions, such as stimulated emission of radiation, abstraction, stimulating energy sources, optical resonators, lasing mediums, and excitation systems.
