Nearly 60 Years in the Making – Today”s High Power Lasers

This article marked the 50th anniversary of development of the laser in 1960 and details the development path from that first few hundred watt laser to today”s ultrapowerful petawatt and exawatt laser systems. The invention of the laser nearly 60 years ago has led to the latest generation of devices, with power bursts thousands of

Laser-Heated Nanowires Produce Micro-Scale Nuclear Fusion With Record Efficiency

Nuclear fusion, the process that powers our sun, happens when nuclear reactions between light elements produce heavier ones. It’s also happening – at a smaller scale – in a Colorado State University laboratory. Using a compact but powerful laser to heat arrays of ordered nanowires, CSU scientists and collaborators have demonstrated micro-scale nuclear fusion in
