how did laser get its name ?
Question asked by: vaishnavi

Asked on: 12 Jun 2009

Laser is a focused and usually intense beam of pure light.

Laser is an acronym so should perhaps be LASER and it stands for:

light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation

... so that is how laser got its name!
