Ummm, a laser has exactly as much energy as you put in, like a light bulb. It is certainly not a source of energy. Perhaps you could clarify what you mean? –  Chris White Aug 1 '13 at 16:22
@ChrisWhite i saw many videos on youtube laser can cut something because of Thermal energy i think .. is there another energy can be obtained from laser like thermal energy ? am i clear ? –  ArsanGamal Aug 1 '13 at 19:01
