The most powerful laser in the U.S. will have a three-quadrillion-watt maximum output

To begin with, it will only run at a fraction of its eventual three-quadrillion-watt maximum output.

A laser at the University of Michigan, which is set to be the most powerful in the United States, is preparing to send its first laser pulses into an experimental target, a press statement explains.

The laser, named the Zetawatt-Equivalent Ultrashort pulse laser System, or Zeus, will be used to investigate quantum physics as well as outer space. It is hoped studies using the laser will also help to build new technologies in electronics and medicine.
