Coherence keeps the laser pointer beam focused at a distance

Why is the laser beam so thin? There is no absolute reason to say that they must be thin. The “green laser pointer” is only light amplified by stimulated radiation, so if you prepare some optical gain medium in its excited state and put in some “seed” light of the correct frequency, it will be…

The green laser pointer still has a relatively safe power level

If you mean under “normal” conditions, that is, there is not much dust in the air, and the humidity is within the normal range, then it largely depends on the wavelength. The shorter wavelengths are more dispersed in the air molecules (the presence of gas) than the longer wavelengths. Dispersion is the cause of the…

Your laser pointer beam can go into space

Laser is a high-energy coherent and extremely concentrated focused electromagnetic wave. But it will eventually pay remotely. I am not a green laser pointer expert by any means, but I think one of the reasons is that the beam itself consists of multiple wavelengths. There are countless wavelength starting points between any two consecutive peaks in the…

Is it possible to destroy the earth with a laser beam powerful enough?

Can laser treatment really reverse scalp hair loss? green laser pointer treatment may thicken existing hair, thereby inhibiting the temporary growth and density of hair. The only three ways to increase hair density are hair transplantation, hair micro-pigmentation (creating the illusion of shaved head/creating dark shadows between existing hair) or wigs. Is it possible to destroy the…

This is a real modern laser pointer weapon

I am tired of lasers. Can you think of an original sci-fi weapon with physically possible effects? There are many good answers here, but I will add: What about the green laser pointer that really work? If no medium can pass through, they are invisible, and they actually travel at the speed of light. You just stand…

Can a laser pointer shoot down a drone?

If you really use a powerful laser, you have an aid to aim directly at the camera, if the remote pilot uses trans-horizon/first-person vision, then he will be forced to use the map to navigate and eventually go home. It will be very difficult. Compared with manned aircraft, green laser pointer are much more harmful to drones….
