A report on Stimulated emission, Maser and Light
A maser (, an acronym for microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) is a device that produces coherent electromagnetic waves through amplification by stimulated emission.- Maser
Such a gain medium, along with an optical resonator, is at the heart of a laser or maser.- Stimulated emission
When an electron absorbs energy either from light (photons) or heat (phonons), it receives that incident quantum of energy.- Stimulated emission
Gould originally proposed distinct names for devices that emit in each portion of the spectrum, including grasers (gamma ray lasers), xasers (x-ray lasers), uvasers (ultraviolet lasers), lasers (visible lasers), irasers (infrared lasers), masers (microwave masers), and rasers (RF masers).- Maser
Emission can also be stimulated, as in a laser or a microwave maser.- Light

A laser is a device that emits light through a process of optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation.
The first device using amplification by stimulated emission operated at microwave frequencies, and was named "maser", an acronym for "microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation".
