In electronics, “beam” is a term commonly used in optics or electronics to mean a straight beam or beam of electrons.
Here is an explanation of some common meanings:
Ray (beam): A ray (beam) is a term used in optical instruments or optical communication systems, and refers to a light beam traveling in a straight line.
Light rays can be produced by laser diodes, optical fibers, or other light sources, and are used for information transmission or optical operations.
Light rays can pass through or reflect optical elements such as optical lenses, reflectors, and refractors.
Electron Beam: Electron beam is a term used in electronic or electro-optical devices to describe a beam in which electron particles travel in a straight line.
Electron beams are used in applications such as electron microscopy, electron beam lithography, and more.
The electron beam may pass through or reflect electro-optical elements such as electronic close-stops, electronic lenses, and electronic refractors.
Beam also refers to the flow of electrons, such as beam current in electronic components.
Beam current refers to the current that electrons flow in an electron tub (tube) or electronic element, and can be used to operate an electronic component or perform a specific function.
