Military experts in China claim to have made a massive breakthrough in laser weapon technology

Chinese military experts claim to have achieved a significant breakthrough in laser weapon technology, according to a report from the South China Morning Post (SCMP). Scientists at the National University of Defence Technology in Changsha, Hunan province, have developed a new cooling mechanism that addresses the heat buildup issue associated with high-energy lasers. This cooling technology, as stated by the researchers, completely eliminates the hazardous heat generated during high-energy laser operation, a major technical challenge in laser weapon development.

The cooling system now allows these laser weapons to operate continuously, generating laser beams without interruption or performance degradation. The team, led by laser weapon scientist Yuan Shengfu, published their findings in the Chinese-language peer-reviewed journal Acta Optica Sinica on August 4. They noted that the high-quality laser beams can be produced not only in the initial seconds but maintained indefinitely, thanks to this breakthrough.

The cooling system is designed to remove heat from within the laser weapon while controlling turbulence and vibration, along with improving mirror cleaning through enhanced structures and optimized gas flow. This technology has the potential to revolutionize battle scenarios by extending engagement times, increasing range and damage, and reducing logistical challenges and costs.

The scientists acknowledged the historical enthusiasm for transitioning from kinetic energy to laser energy for rapid energy projection, but noted that despite the development of various types of lasers over the past 60 years, the application of high-energy laser systems has not been successful until now.

As laser weapon development accelerates due to growing arms competition between China and the West, the appearance of this advanced technology may pose new challenges for missile sensors. Previous reports have mentioned the presence of laser guns on high-end military vehicles, such as Air Force One and Apache attack helicopters, which use laser beams to divert homing missiles.

 
I wonder if sometime in the future, because Chinese warships already have very capable energy storage/delivery systems, we'll see a swinging "lightsaber" (continuous laser beam) mounted on the ships. You can't miss swinging the laser sword around in the air on incoming tricky objects...
 
congratulations! in spite of all the additional security and sanctions, CCP must have managed to get someone to smuggle out more usb drives out of JPL and Caltech
 
Interesting, a few tech breakthrough are advertised to the world, whereas a few others are kept secret. The DF-27 was kept secret for years before news starting coming out, whereas this one looks more like an ongoing development, but news is already out.

Congrats to China. I hope OIC looks towards China to lead the world.

I am waiting for the very day China becomes the world's largest economy in Nominal GDP.

Yeah, dogs lick the *** of your masters, you'll be rewarded such awarding you the titles of CEOs of American companies.

see, even while cussing your coprophilia shows up! all you can think of is kissing someone's arse ! do you do that for each meal? yuck. disgusting

Indians are loyal white people's slaves
so you agree CCP found a way to steal more technology. Good
 
see, even while cussing your coprophilia shows up! all you can think of is kissing someone's arse ! do you do that for each meal? yuck. disgusting
That's what you Indians are good at, sucking white *** and eat cow dungs, fool.

does that make you angry for you to see other licking more than you? you are disgusting etylo! get treated

When it comes to stealing, no one can beat your white masters, they even now living on stolen lands.
hm, you are so ingrained in slavery at dna level that whenever you mention white you have to call them master. Sad.
 
The disgusting **** is you fool.
but you are the one licking arse and getting jelaous when you see otherss do it. You said so yourself.
That is what is disgusting.
On top of that your coprophila seems to be getting the worse of you

You Indians are born slaves and enjoy being so.
since opposit is tru when comes from you, that about figures
 
but you are the one licking arse and getting jelaous when you see otherss do it. You said so yourself.
That is what is disgusting.

No, licking whites' arses and eating cow dungs are you Indian fool exclusive right.
