laser plasma
A plasma produced by the interaction of an intense laser pulse with a material surface. Production of ionized particle with high intensity radiation. The narrow path of the intense field produces a plasma channel. The LIPC (laser-induced plasma channel) laser has been adapted towards electroshock weapons as well as induced lightning.

HANDBOOK > Photonics Handbook® A unique collection of technical design and applications articles, as well as technology primers presenting the basics of the photonics technology.
Optical Design Software
Choose Wisely, Save Money
Thanks to powerful and inexpensive desktop computers and a wide range of software product offerings, from simple shareware programs to very sophisticated packages, options abound for users of optical design software. Choosing optical design software requires both an understanding of what the task requires and the capabilities and limitations of the available programs. While price comparisons are easy, factors associated with productivity, efficiency and the ability to deliver workable...
