Stimulated Emission

(A Processing program illustrating the workings of a laser)

Mengyao Wang


This Processing sketch explains how stimulated emission of photons is utilised to create a laser beam. To start using the applet click the image below, the applet page also contains more information regarding the use and features of the program.

The applet was programmed during my first weeks as a PhD student at the University of Birmingham, UK. See also our other Processing examples.
