World’s Superlasers Gets a Go Signal

The ELI project's three superlasers will be gearing up after a long time of waiting for approval and paltry funding issues.

After eons of pending approval and paltry funding issues, the European Commission finally gives the Extreme Light Infrastructure or ELI project a go signal. The ELI project plans to build three superlasers by 2015. These lasers will be the first to operate in quintillion watts – or exawatt – scale. That’s almost a million times more powerful than 10 billion 100-watt light bulbs.

This never-before-seen technology has a long list of implications beginning with cancer diagnosis and treatment, nuclear waste elimination, broadening the technology industry, and expansion of nano-science and molecular chemistry research. The ELI project’s superlasers will find its home in Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania.

A fourth superlaser, with beams twice the power of the first three, should be forthcoming. This is the laser that was theorized to be the most powerful beam possible.
