Fun facts

The word “laser” appeared as an acronym for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.”

Einstein had a role in the discovery of the laser. We would not have lasers today, if it were not for his theory of stimulated emission.

Scientists at Imperial College London have recently proposed a method to heat materials with a laser up to 15 million degrees centigrade, which is hotter than in the centre of the sun!
