* Radius
 
* Radius
** The Radius property represents the size of the spot that the laser shines on the object's surface. Radius, Total Power, and Power per Area are [[Locked Properties|locked properties]].
+
** The Radius property represents the size of the spot that the laser shines on the object's surface. Increasing the Radius of the laser will increase its Power Out.
* Total Power
+
* Power
** The Power Out of the laser represents the rate at which energy will be added to the object that the laser hits. Radius, Total Power, and Power per Area are [[Locked Properties|locked properties]].
+
** This property represents the rate at which energy is added to the gain medium of the laser. Increasing the Power of the laser will increase its Power Out.
* Power per Area
 
** The Power per Area represents the power per area of the object's surface. Radius, Total Power, and Power per Area are [[Locked Properties|locked properties]].
 
* Auto Radius
 
** When the Auto Radius toggle is on, the radius of the laser will be set automatically based on the radius of the target object.
 
 
* Wavelength
 
* Wavelength
 
** Lasers are characterized based on the wavelength (i.e., color) of light that they emit.

* Power Out
  +
** The Power Out of the laser represents the rate at which energy will be added to the object that the laser hits. The value of the Power Out is automatically calculated by Universe Sandbox based on the laser's Radius and Power.
 
* Show Beam
 
* Show Beam
 
** A real laser is not visible until it hits an object or passes through a material that will diffract its light. When Show Beam is turned on, the laser will be artificially visible.
