Lasers at Work (August 1)

UAS FH Construction Update for 8/01/2014

Lasers at Work (August 1)

My physics teacher gave the following analogy for a laser:  Light waves coming from a light bulb are like a bunch of 2-year olds, they just go in any which direction until they bump into a wall.  Light waves coming from a laser is like a precision drill team with synchronized movements and all moving in the same direction.   It may not be a good analogy, but it is memorable.

The theory behind Lasers was established in 1917 by Albert Einstein.  It was not until the mid-1950’s when the first lasers came on the scene.  It however, it has only been the last decade that lasers have been cheap enough that they started to show up on the construction site.  Now every time you turn a corner in the UAS Freshman Residential Housing Project.

Here are some of the ways the Contractor has been using Lasers.

Laser used to set elevation grades on building foundations.

Laser is the acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation

The uses of lasers is limited only by your imagination.
