The development of lasers has been an exciting chapter in the history of science and engineering. It has produced a new device with potential for applications in an extraordinary variety of fields. Einstein developed the concept of stimulated emission on theoretical grounds. Stimulated emission is the phenomenon that is utilized in lasers. Stimulated emission produces amplification of light so that buildup of high-intensity light in the laser can occur. Einstein described the fundamental nature of the stimulated emission process theoretically.
