Scientists have discovered how to create a real life ‘superlaser’ using an ultra-pure diamond. How exactly does it work?
The Star Wars ‘superlaser’ may no longer be sci-fi
“The research, published in Laser and Photonics Reviews demonstrates a concept – reminiscent of the Star Wars Death Star sci-fi laser – where the power of multiple laser beams is transferred into a single intense output beam that can be directed to the intended target.”
Laser That’s a Billion Times Brighter Than the Sun Reveals New Behavior in Light
“Researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have generated the brightest light ever produced on Earth, and it may change the way we look at the universe – quite literally.”
GE Is Developing the World’s Largest Laser-Powered 3D Metal Printer
“Developed by General Electric’s spinoff division GE Additive, the new machine is expected to have a major impact on aerospace manufacturing, considering that it can create virtually any kind of aircraft part using lasers, computers, and powdered metal.”
Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
