World's Newest, Most Powerful Laser Comes Online

tcc Re:Don't be too proud... (110 comments)

If he uses a frequency doubling crystal on his laser, it becomes 532nm, so what would make it green too :)

Assuming there's a crystal supporting such a hit.

On the other hand I wonder how they've managed to get around air ionization... for far less energy then that, air ionize and it creates a mirror effect that sometimes bounces the beam back in the system and crack something in the optical system (usually the crystal)
