In semiconductors, lasing happens when electrons and holes recombine. In
crystalline lasers like ruby, the lasing occurs when an electron falls from an
excited state to a lower state and emits a photon. Is it correct to call this
recombination (since essentially it is a similar process) or is there another
term to describe it?
