The origin of the laser can be traced back to the early 1950s. In 1954, Charles Townes and Arthur Ritchie of Bell Laboratories in the United States invented the first laser, which used three mirrors to reflect energy back and forth, producing highly synchronized concentrated beams of light. Since then, people have made many major discoveries and innovations in laser technology.
With the continuous development of laser technology, laser has become the most critical and important part of modern science and technology. Laser technology is widely used in medicine, communication, military, aerospace, manufacturing and other fields.
The application of laser in the medical field includes laser surgery, laser treatment, laser diagnosis and so on.
1. Surgery: Laser surgery is a minimally invasive surgical method, which can be used in ophthalmology, dermatology, stomatology and other fields. Laser surgery has the advantages of less trauma, less bleeding and faster recovery, which can replace traditional surgical methods and reduce the pain of patients.
2. Treatment: Laser treatment can be used for skin diseases, neuropathy, orthopedic diseases and other aspects. The advantage of laser therapy is that it can accurately illuminate the lesion site, thereby reducing pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair.
3. Diagnosis: Laser diagnosis can be used in ophthalmology, dermatology and other fields. Through the reflection and scattering characteristics of the laser, changes in the internal structure of the human body can be observed, so that diagnosis can be made.
4. Beauty: Laser beauty can be used to remove dark spots, pigmentation, wrinkles and other aspects. The advantages of laser cosmetology are remarkable treatment effect, small trauma, fast recovery and so on.
Laser applications in industrial manufacturing include cutting, welding, marking, radar ranging and so on.
1. Cutting: Laser cutting is a high-precision, high-speed, non-contact cutting method. It can be used for cutting metal, plastic, wood, ceramics and other materials. The advantage of laser cutting is that it can precisely control the cutting depth and shape, and it can also achieve automated production and improve production efficiency.
2. Welding: Laser welding is a high energy density welding method, which can be used for the connection of metal materials. Compared with traditional welding methods, laser welding can achieve a smaller heat-affected area, which reduces deformation and residual stress, and can achieve high-speed, high-precision welding.
3. Marking: Laser marking is a non-contact marking method, which can be used for marking various materials, such as metals, plastics, ceramics and so on. The advantages of laser marking are fast marking speed, high marking accuracy, beautiful effect, good permanency, and can be applied to the marking and tracing of various products.
4. Radar ranging: LiDAR is a high-precision distance measurement technology that can calculate the distance of the target object by measuring the travel time of light. Lidar can be used to make topographic maps, three-dimensional maps of buildings and so on. At the same time, Lidar is also widely used in self-driving cars, robots, drones and other fields.
Lasers are also widely used in military applications, and can be used in weapon systems, intelligence and reconnaissance, communications and navigation.
1. Weapon system: Laser weapon is a new type of weapon system that can produce high-energy, high-power laser beams for attacking enemy targets. The advantages of laser weapons are high speed, high precision, strong lethality and low cost.
2. Intelligence reconnaissance: Lasers can be used to detect and monitor enemy targets. For example, LiDAR can detect distant targets, laser rangefinders can accurately measure distances, and laser communication technology can achieve high-speed transmission and secure communication.
3. Communication and navigation: Laser communication and navigation technology can be used for military communication, navigation and positioning. For example, laser communication can achieve high-speed, high-bandwidth, anti-interference communication, laser navigation can improve accuracy and accuracy, while having anti-interference ability.
It can be said that laser technology has profoundly changed the way of human life and work and become an indispensable part of the development of modern science and technology.
