India is making major strides in developing laser technology that will revolutionise treatment of cancer and open up new vistas in the field of communication technology, Dr B N Jagtap, Senior Scientist and Director of Chemistry group at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, has said.
Scientists have experimentally re-created the conditions that endure deep inside the giant planets like Jupiter, Uranus and many of the planets recently discovered outside our solar system with the help of very powerful laser.
US space agency NASA said Friday it has successfully beamed a high-definition video from the International Space Station to Earth using a new laser communications instrument, a technology demonstration that could help fundamentally change the way of communication in future deep space missions.
Scientists have developed a new technology that can send high-intensity laser beams through the atmosphere much farther than was possible before, and it could one day be used to guide lightning away from buildings.
Researchers have said that the completion of the 30-day Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration or LLCD mission has revealed that the possibility of expanding broadband capabilities in space using laser communications is as bright as expected.
Physicists have proposed a revolutionary new laser system to produce the next generation of particle accelerators, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) which aided the discovery of a Higgs Boson last year.
