Researchers Find Reducing Power to a Laser Could Increase Output

Researchers Find Reducing Power to a Laser Could Increase Output | In Compliance Magazine

A new method to carefully restrict the power delivered to specific areas within a laser could lead to improvements in the laser’s output by many orders of magnitude.

A research team at Princeton University used mathematical calculations and computer simulations to test their theory that by limiting power delivery to a laser, the physical space in the laser absorbs the light rather than producing light. The optimal efficient portion of the laser shines far more brightly than previous estimates. This new development could lead to more sensitive and energy-efficient lasers, and increased control over frequency and spatial pattern of light emissions.

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part One

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.
