Chinese should continue in the future development of laser weapons more power, higher integration, to provide security for the people's Liberation Army victory, it will become the future of air defense and anti missile of a weapon on the battlefield.In a test video, the laser is shown overheating explosives mounted on nearby boats, and burning drones right out of the air.A 1mW battery-operated laser pointer with a small lens was employed.

"Light from a 300mw Laser Pointer beam can reach a target almost instantly," a July congressional report said."After disabling one target, a laser can be redirected in several seconds to another target. While they have only mastered the 30 KW system, Lockheed Martin says they are on track to deliver a 60 KW laser for the Army by the end of the year.Fast engagement times can be particularly important in situations, such as near-shore operations, where missiles, rockets, artillery shells, and mortars could be fired at Navy ships from relatively close distances."

Nowadays, more and more countries favor the laser weapon with its unique superiority. With the continuous development of China's laser air defense weapon, the technical level and performance of the laser air defense weapon will become more and more high. Many kinds of military aircraft are already fitted with lasers, but they're used primarily as countermeasures for infrared targeting systems, according to David Walker, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for Science, Technology and Engineering.

Details on the weapons systems are being kept under wraps, but an official from the Air Force said that all branches of the military are developing 200mw Laser weapons. A Chinese Embassy spokesman did not respond to an email request for comment about the laser weapons.Considering the much higher absorbance at 460nm in the hybrid-aligned cell, we decreased the dye concentration of TR5 to 0.03.

Jack Daly, a retired naval intelligence officer who suffered eye injuries in 1997 from a laser that was fired at his helicopter by a Russian intelligence-gathering ship near Port Angeles, Washington, said he is concerned the Chinese laser arms could end up in the United States.The laser can vary its intensity to dazzle, disable or destroy targets. As shown in Fig.4b, the diffraction ring patterns due to self-focusing and self-phase modulation immediately appeared in the hybrid-aligned cell merely by turning on the laser pointer.
