Powerful Lasers Pioneering Recent Advancements in Particle Physics Research

The laser has been the driving force of our expertise at Lenox Laser for 40 years, however the question remains, what are most powerful lasers in the world right now? We are surrounded by lasers in modern life, from laser printers, to barcode scanners, to medical equipment, and optical hard drives. This past March, CERN in Geneva, known for their particle physics laboratory and particle accelerator, conducted an experiment to cool down antimatter for the first time ever using a laser. They achieved this by making antihydrogen atoms with antiprotons and driving the energy state of the atoms to the lowest possible state.  

The ZEUS laser at the University of Michigan, which is currently studying plasmas, is reportedly the most powerful laser in the United States. Once it is moved into a vacuum chamber, it can then begin precision focus on selected targets delivering extremely fast and short pulses of light. Scientists will measure the volume of gas and using the high energy beam, turn that volume into ionized plasma. The CoReLS(Center for Relativistic Laser Science) laser in South Korea is capable of exceptionally fine cuts thanks to a 28 cm beam using extremely fine parabolic mirrors and glass optics to achieve its precision. Currently, the most powerful laser in the world exists in Osaka, Japan with an outstanding output of 2000 trillion Watts. It is called the Laser for Fast Ignition Experiments (LFEX).  

All these places around the world are being used to re-create environmental space areas to learn more about the universe. The laser facilities that house these mammoth sized projects are not just for storage but for theoretical research as well. For our part in the laser business, Lenox Laser has a wide variety of laser systems for many different applications and is always interested in the forefront of laser technology and pioneering. From laser drilling, to optics, to precision custom-made orders using laser accuracy, we can drill almost anything. Feel free to visit our services page to learn more about our products and capabilities. We look forward to assisting you and want to thank our long-time customers for supporting us over the 40 years of innovation.
