Britain To Develop World’s Most Powerful Laser

Britain To Develop World's Most Powerful Laser

Lasers have always been a part of various industries. They are used in many areas, such as in medicine, the military, and in various scientific experiments. They are a very important part of various experiments and will continue to be used in research. The development of lasers started more than a hundred years ago, and they have been the center of various research since then. NASA has also taken the help of laser technology and has been instrumental in developing various technologies. Now, news regarding them is coming up. British scientists are planning to create a super-strong laser, the most powerful ever. It will cost around £85 million. They want this laser to help us use nuclear fusion for clean energy, which is almost limitless.

Laser will take six years

according to The Times, the laser will take around six years to make. This mega-laser is named as Vulcan 20-20, and it will be located in Harwell, Oxfordshire. The laser will have a beam that will be millions of times more powerful than the sun. With an investment of £85 million, British scientists have high hopes regarding this laser as, according to them, this development of the laser will help speed up progress in nuclear fusion, renewable energy, and battery technology.

The laser is 20 times more powerful

This laser will be more potent than the entire National Grid and beat the current leading laser, the Vulcan. The Vulcan laser is generally used to study various properties of plasma physics, but this new laser will be 20 times more than this Vulcan. The scientists are very positive regarding the laser, and it will be a good tool for them to study the secrets of the universe and how it works.
