Scientists Introduced New Laser Developed from Fluorescent Jellyfish Proteins


Scientists has created history by introducing new LASER (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) from fluorescent jellyfish proteins for the first time ever, it were grown in bacteria.

  • It is a major advance innovation in polariton lasers operating at room temperature.


  • “A light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation (LASER) is a device which produces light through a process of optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation.”
  • Laser is releases light coherently so that it is different from other lights.

Polariton Laser

  • Polariton laser is a different kind of laser which is works by passing photons back and forth between excited molecules.

Key Facts

  • Scientists had designed barrel shaped fluorescent proteins from jellyfish DNA to innovate the fluorescent Polariton laser.
  • They had filled this protein in optical micro cavities between two mirrors, before revealing them to optical pumping.
  • Blue light’s nanosecond flashes from an external laser were used to boost the system up to the essential energy to create laser light.
  • When the threshold reached for polariton lasing, more energy was pushed into the device setup by scientist that caused conventional lasing.
  • These lasers are able to be far more effective and compressed than conventional ones.
  • This laser could also reveal the research paths in quantum physics and optical computing.
  • It uses less energy as compared to conventional lasers.
  • It can be used in effectual optical communications or in medical lasers that are less destroyer to living tissue.
