Directory:Lasers and Energy / Directory:Nuclear > Directory:Fusion > Worlds Largest Laser Takes First Steps Toward Nuclear Fusion - When all of its 192 laser beams are operational later this year, the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) will focus about two million joules of ultraviolet laser energy on a tiny target in the center of its target chamber, generating unprecedented temperatures (100 million degrees) and pressures (100 billion times Earth's atmosphere) in the target materials...

Directory:Weather Control / Directory:Lasers and Energy > Swiss breakthrough could mean rain on demand - Researchers from the University of Geneva have reported laser-powered cloud seeding success, both inside and outside the laboratory. The team fired short 220-millijoule pulses of infrared light from a laser into an illuminated chamber of water-saturated air at minus 24°C and noted the formation of clouds in the laser's wake.

Latest: Directory:Refrigeration / Directory:Capillary Action Engines > NEW: Directory:University of Rochester:Laser-etching surfaces for capillary action Laser-etched silicon draws fluid upward – ideal for evaporative cooling, not for perpetual motion - Researches at the University of Rochester have devised a process in which a special high-power laser etching on the surface of silicon makes liquid flow vertically upward along the silicon surface, overcoming the pull of gravity, without pumps or other mechanical devices.

Latest: Directory:Solar / Directory:Storage > Directory:Magnesium Energy Cycle - Professor Yabe of Tokyo Tech is heading the development of a process that combines magnesium and water to produce high energy steam and hydrogen, which is burned to produce additional high energy steam to power an engine with no harmful emissions. The magnesium oxide by-product is reduced back to magnesium through a solar powered laser process to be reused. (PESWiki Nov. 10, 2009)

Latest: Directory:Solar > Directory:Black Silicon >Directory:SiOnyx' Black Silicon by Mazur - Black silicon is a material that is between 100 and 500 times more sensitive and absorbs nearly twice the visible light of regular silicon and detects infrared light that is normally invisible to silicon based devices.
