Lasers are used frequently in many different fields today, ranging from scientific research to medical treatment and industrial purposes. Laser’s cutting-edge technology has paved the way for new research methods in such areas as photochemistry, microscopy and nuclear fusion. In medicine, lasers play an important role in soft tissue surgery, eye surgery and cosmetic surgery among other applications. Laser use in industrial applications include high-powered sheet metal cutting, bar code readers and tablet manufacturing for smart phone screens and other electronics. Lasers are also becoming more popular with hobbyists who enjoy using the tool in many different ways.
Glass etching creates an effect of frosted glass on a wine glass, a glass plate or a Christmas ornament that has been engraved using a laser. The CO2 laser is most commonly used to create etching effects on glass. CO2 lasers can also etch photographs onto a number of different materials, among them ceramic, leather, brass, walnut and plastic. The process for creating laser photographs is one that is similar to printing photographs on other kinds of materials. Wood cutting with lasers allows a user to create signs and other engravings in a wide range of hard and soft woods including alder, poplar, maple, cherry and beech.
Some more practical hobby laser applications can include engraving identifying information on property. Manufacturing companies use lasers to etch part or lot numbers or bar codes onto their various products. Hobbyists can also use lasers to help permanently mark property that belongs to them, such as tools or, more importantly, guns or rifles. Lasers can be used to easily etch information onto a number of different materials including stainless steel, anodized aluminum and painted brass. It’s much easier to identify property when it includes a laser-etched number.
