LASERS AND OPTICS

By: MacKenzie Underwood

And Carson Thweatt


Lasers and optics

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

  • The word “optic” is derived from the ancient Greek word “opsis”, meaning “apperance, sight, view.”


Atmospheric optics halos

Atmospheric Optics: halos

Halo- an optical phenomenon produced byice crystals creating colored or white arcs and spots in the sky.

  • produced by the ice crystals in cirrus clouds high in the upper tropshere.

  • crystals behave like prisms and mirrors refracting light between their faces at 22 degrees sending shafts of light in particular directions creating the halos.


Rainbows

Rainbows

  • An example of dispersion (seperation of light into colors arranged according to frequency)

  • Seen while sun is shining in one part of the sky and when water droplets in a cloud or in falling rain are in the opposite part of the sky.

  • Would be round if the ground weren’t in the way.


Lasers

Lasers

  • The coherent light produced by a laser differs from the random emission of light from atoms in common sources.

  • The laser isn’t a source of energy but a converter of energy.

  • All waves in laser lights go in the same direction and are the same color.


Halos

Halos

  • An optical phenomenon produced by ice crystals creating colored or white arcs and spots in the sky.

  • They form in cold weather when ice crystals called diamond dust are floating in the air.
