Two fundamentally new types of lasers are presented

Normal laser stimulates emission of radiation by the transfer of electrons being in the working chamber to the excited state, and when they reach a high enough energy, they can give up a part of it by emitting photons. It was they who form a coherent beam of light that we call laser radiation.

The high-energy laser system ADAM hits a flying target at a distance of 1.5 kilometers

ADAM is a mobile laser HEL system mounted on a car trailer. The relatively small size and weight of the system allows to bring and deploy it quickly at the right place.

Time-of-Flight (ToF)

The research team from the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, led by Gerald Buller, has developed a new system consisting of a camera and a laser that can create a three-dimensional image with a relatively high resolution from a distance of up to one kilometer.

DARPA is developing "all-seeing" laser radar

The companies Lockheed Martin and DRS Technologies received $ 4.4 and $ 3.2 million for the development of a laser radar (lidar):  an emitter with the ability to change parameters of the signal and the corresponding detector. Earlier $ 3.1 million were received by Princeton Lightwave laboratory

Packing in magnetic recording by laser heating

Until recently, record density in this configuration was limited by the size of the focal spot of the laser. Scientists from Seagate Technology proposed the use the optical nanoantenna for the concentration of electromagnetic radiation. Data density on magnetic disks doubled every three years since their invention in 1955.
