This resource, part of the Spectroscopy Lab Suite, illustrates the physics of a Helium-Neon Laser. Students can create energy levels for both the He and Ne atoms. The basic processes for light emission, including collisions and level transitions are shown. The atomic energy levels and the pumping energy can be adjusted to achieve an output spectrum similar to the measured physical spectrum.
