In this lesson on Production of Light from Matter, which is part of Unit 4 Area of Study 2 for VCE Physics, you’ll learn how to:
- compare the production of light in lasers, synchrotrons, LEDs and incandescent lights.
How does a laser really work?
The Incandescent Lamp
Learn how a lamp works, its history, inventors and advantages and disadvantages in the video below.
