written by the Kansas State Physics Education Research Group and Dean A. Zollman
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.

Helium Neon Laser:

Covers the Same Topic As Ruby Laser

The Ruby Laser activity illustrates the same principle but with fewer complications than the Helium Neon Laser activity.
