Scientists have created a super powerful laser in diamonds
The story Belyaev "Hyperboloid of engineer Garina" read many, since the writing works, it took a lot of time, but to create a super powerful laser with long pulse case as it turns out very difficult. Lasers with a short pulse of high power to create is much easier than in times of lesser power but with a greater duty cycle in operation.
Western writers as well as domestic nourish great interest in the lasers, not mainly as a means, which for example will greatly simplify the life of humanity and as something that the life within fraction of seconds to destroy. Otherwise, do not explain what is described in the script for the film "Star Wars", this is where Western science fiction realize their super powerful laser and called it "the Death Star". Is it possible to do something similar on earth to implement Probably, but it will get awfully bulky and power-consuming system, which will need to energize. To build is possible, but pumping such a laser is probably at least need to use a controlled nuclear explosion, and that earthlings do not yet know:)
Some scientists believe that the two-laser beam mix will not work, since photons of one laser will shoot down the photons of the other, maybe so, maybe not, I don`t believe academics. Although recently I read in the Western press that in the laboratory, the scientists mixed lossless multiple beams from the laser generators using conventional diamond "prism", and maybe not prism. I have stopped using it, but it was hard to find a really pure diamond, right diamond allows you to direct a beam of light with amazing accuracy. Scientists noticed that if multiple laser beams to send to the pure diamond crystal, they reflect all in the same direction with the same frequency, that is the mixing. Diamond is strongly heated in this case, but even if you heat, you need to try that hard to even imagine how much I`ll need energy for this experiment. Technology as it really allows you to mix the beams from several individual lasers, but it seems to us it is still far from perfect, that on its basis to build a "Death Star". Although for the military this discovery promises big bonuses, it`s easy to create a powerful and compact laser gun to destroy low-flying enemy targets. You can also in dust turn debris in space, can also be a special modulating signal to transmit information over very long distances up to interplanetary communication.
