Lasers Application

Potential Laser Applications
• Gas lasers, such as the carbon dioxide laser, are • •

extraordinarily efficient and powerful; thus, they are ubiquitous in industry. Hydrogen can be made to emit laser light based on the fact that it vibrates and rotates at many discrete frequencies. The experimental isolation of lower-energy molecular hydrogen and the demonstration of the existence of excited vibration-rotational levels presents the possibility of a laser using a transition from a high-energy vibration-rotational level to another such intermediate energy level.

Potential BLP Laser Applications
• H2(1/p) enables laser at wavelengths from visible to soft X-ray
• VUV photolithography - An advantage exists to produce laser light at much shorter wavelengths such as ultraviolet (UV) and extreme ultraviolet (EUV) wavelengths. Such lasers have a significant application in photolithography. It may be possible to increase the density of the integrated circuit by at least a factor of 10 which would be transformational in a trillion dollar annual hardware market.

• Blue Lasers • Line-of-sight telecom • Defense applications – water is transparent to blue wavelength • Submarine tracking and communications, undersea mine detection, and undersea weapons targeting and communications
