World’s most powerful laser set to triple its power in breakthrough that could change everything from medicine to astrophysics

The most intense laser in the world is about to become twice or even three times as powerful, thanks to a $2 million contribution from the National Science Foundation. With more laser energy to focus, researchers can make smaller, tabletop-sized devices that produce particles and X-ray beams for medical and national security applications, as well as exploring unanswered mysteries in astrophysics and the quantum field.
