The drawing shows three energy levels of a laser that are involved in the lasing action. These levels are analogous to the levels in the Ne atoms of a He-Ne laser. The E2 level is a metastable level, and the E0 level is the ground state. The difference between the energy levels of the laser is shown in the drawing. (a) What energy (in eV per electron) must an external source provide to start the lasing action? (b) What is the wavelength of the laser light? (c) In what region of the electromagnetic spectrum does the laser light lie ?
