laser
a device that produces coherent optical radiation by stimulated emission and amplification in an optical resonant cavity providing positive feedback when external energy is used to maintain a population inversion

Note – Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.

laser, m
dispositif qui émet un rayonnement optique cohérent par émission stimulée et amplification dans une cavité optique assurant une réaction lorsqu'un apport d'énergie entretient une inversion de population

Note – Le mot "laser" est un sigle provenant de l'expression anglaise "Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation".
