Abstract

Laser, a device that controls the way energized atoms release photons, is a key element in many RP technologies. In fact, many RP technologies would not have been possible without the availability of appropriate lasers. Hence it is essential for RP practitioners and researchers to have a basic understanding of laser technology.
