MQ Diamond Research Center and the Fraunhofer Institute of scientists developed a diamond lens. Before the development of the diamond lens maximum output power of only about 20 watts (ordinary high power laser pointer only a few watts), so this study is in fact a huge step forward.
Researchers are interested in diamond-structured lasers because they are able to transmit energy over long distances and are less susceptible to interference. It is precisely because the green laser can be long-distance transmission of energy characteristics, making it widely used in various fields. This study may be possible in the field of laser ranging, space communications or laser weapons applications.
The latest development of this diamond 1000mw laser pointer output power reached 380 watts, completely enough to break through the steel plate. This destructive energy can also be used for the right way, such as the elimination of space junk and so on.
The diamond laser has a wavelength of 1240 nanometers, which is wider than the conventional red laser pointer with a wavelength of 700 nanometers to 800 nanometers. The longer the wavelength means that the less it is affected by the atmosphere, the lower the risk to humans. These wavelengths do not cause harm to human eyes. So do not worry that this laser will give people the impact, to people more positive, positive impact.
The key to this research is that this diamond laser can improve manufacturing technology. The diamonds used in this laser are not made from the ground, but in the laboratory. Now scientists have been able to create more perfect synthetic diamonds, and they will become better and better with time.
