Natural vs. Laser Light

Radiant energy is emitted as photons or particles of traveling waves. Laser radiation differs from ordinary light in several important waves. Laser light is said to be coherent, collimated, and monochromatic. Ordinary light, however, is incoherent, non-collimated, and polychromatic.

Coherent means that laser light travels in waves with each other both temporally and spatially and in the same direction.

Incoherent means that the ordinary light waves does not travel in phase with each other.

Collimated means that the laser light waves travel in a unidirectional and virtually parallel fashion which do not diverge significantly from its source even over long distances.

Non-collimated means that the ordinary light diverges significantly from its source and shines in all directions.

Monochromatic means that the laser light is a single wavelength of color.

Polychromatic means that the ordinary light is flashes numerous wavelengths of color.
