Free Electron Laser Program Demonstrates injector for megawatt laser beams

Office of Naval Research's Free Electron Laser (FEL) program, demonstrating an injector capable of producing the electrons needed to generate megawatt-class laser beams for the Navy's next-generation weapon system.

The team is nine months ahead of schedule which provides plenty of time to reach goals set for end of 2011. The research team hopes to have a full-power prototype by 2018, which would have the ability to instantly blast targets in the sky.
