Researchers built a laser that can supposedly run forever
Researchers have managed to create a never-ending laser they say can run forever. Unlike normal light-powered lasers, this laser draws its power from a special phase of matter. The researchers published their findings on the laser in the journal Nature earlier this month.
We’ve seen a number of breakthroughs in lasers in recent years, including some that might make computers faster. But, this is the first time we’ve seen a laser that could run forever.
This never-ending laser runs off atoms
The researchers revealed in a paper about the never-ending laser that it is made with a Bose-Einstein Condensate. The secret, the researchers revealed, was to manipulate the atoms directly. They managed to make the atoms behave as contained waves. This manipulation also supports some of the principles of quantum …
