Engineers Turn a Laser Beam into a Stream of Liquid

Posted by in categories: energy, innovation

Circa 2017 I think with a light into matter laser we could create water but this idea could be a first step.


Lasers are one of the iconic breakthroughs of 20th century science. They produce coherent photons in tight beams of specific energy. They can transmit data, detect molecules, and burn through metal. The photons they produce also have significant momentum.

And that raises an interesting question. Is it possible to transfer this momentum to generate matter rays such as a liquid flow? Not until now.
