  5. 5. INVERTED POPULATION When a sizable population of electrons resides in upper levels, this condition is called a "population inversion“ In order to obtain the coherent light from stimulated emission, two conditions must be satisfied: 1. The atoms must be excited to the higher state. That is, an inverted population is needed, one in which more atoms are in the upper state than in the lower one, so that emission of photons will dominate over absorption. Unexcited system 1E 2E 3E Excited system 1E 2E 3E
  6. 6. METASTABLE STATE 2. The higher state must be a metastable state – a state in which the electrons remain longer than usual so that the transition to the lower state occurs by stimulated emission rather than spontaneously.

  10. 10. 10 LASER OUTPUT Continuous Output (CW) Pulsed Output (P) watt (W) - Unit of power or radiant flux (1 watt = 1 joule per second). Joule (J) - A unit of energy Energy (Q) The capacity for doing work. Energy content is commonly used to characterize the output from pulsed lasers and is generally expressed in Joules (J). Irradiance (E) - Power per unit area, expressed in watts per square centimeter. Energy(Watts) Time Energy(Joules) Time

  29. 29. MORE RECENTLY HAVE BEEN ADOPTED THE TERMS OF: Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT). LLLT devices are typically delivering 10mW -200mW (0.2  0.01 Watts).

  31. 31. TRATAMENT BY LLLT  LLLT offer superior healing and pain relieving effects , especially in the early stages of acute injuries, and for chronic problems.  LLLT is a universal method of treating muscle, tendon, ligament, connective tissue, bone and skin tissue with one simple piece of equipment, however, the best results are achieved when it is used to complement other treatment modalities!  Importantly for athletes, LLLT is a non-invasive, drug-free modality that can be applied on competition day without risking disqualification by drug testing!
  32. 32. HOW DOES LASER WORK?  The LASER effect at the cellular level, in vivo situation, is not complete and it is not very well know ,  studies are conducted for the research of all this effects, and it is far away to be completed.

  34. 34. GENERALITY  Most authorities suggest that the ENERGY DENSITY per TREATMENT SESSION should generally reduce in the range of 0.1 - 12.0 J/cm2 despite the fact that there are some recommendations which go up to 30 J/cm2.  maximal dose of 4 J/cm2 should not be exceeded.  Lower doses should be applied to the more acute lesions which would appear to be more energy sensitive.  Treatment time between 4 and 12 minutes.

  56. 56. CONCLUSION  Laser communication in space has long been a goal for NASA because it would enable data transmission rates that are 10 to 1,000 times higher than traditional radio waves.  While lasers and radio transmissions both travel at light- speed, lasers can pack more data. It's similar to moving from a dial-up Internet connection to broadband. Astronomers could use lasers like very accurate rulers to measure the movement of planets with unprecedented precision. With microwaves, we're limited to numbers like a meter or two in distance, whereas [lasers have] a potential for getting down into well beyond the centimeter range.
