Using the frequency domain characteristics of advanced laser (ultra-short wave, ultra-long wave, tunable, single frequency, wide spectrum, etc.), time domain characteristics (ultra-fast, ultra-high peak value, etc.) and energy domain characteristics (high brightness, high power, high energy, etc.) can provide a new tool for frontier science and technology research.
Since modern science came into being, basic physical theory has played the most important role in promoting social development. The birth of Newtonian mechanics system brought mechanized industrial revolution, the establishment of electromagnetic theory brought electrified industrial revolution, and the emergence of quantum theory gave birth to information and intelligent society. Several dark clouds in current basic science (such as dark matter, dark energy, grand Unified field theory, etc.) call for the emergence of new basic physical theories. Decades of research show that the extreme conditions and study of the phenomenon of the universe, is one of the optimal ways to produce innovation theory, and super fast super laser technology is the human "manufacturing" universe extreme conditions of the optimal solution, it has a stellar core and the hole edge have high power density, super electromagnetic intensity extreme physical properties, Make the supernova explosions, "big event" the universe black hole mergers, etc to extreme conditions may be artificially produced in the laboratory, make scientific research from passive to wait for the "big event" happened to independently controllable human scientific activities, for the parallel universe, vacuum physics, such as string theory is yet to be set up and improve the theory provides the necessary experimental tools.
<Laser Focus World>: In 2020, overall SPENDING on research in the United States increased by about 2 percent, while China's r&d spending grew by more than 6 percent. Together, the U.S. and China account for more than 50% of global r&d spending, making it a big deal. In 2020, the overall development of lasers has increased, basically not affected by the epidemic. Because most of these laser orders were signed before the pandemic, we haven't really seen the impact of the pandemic in this area yet.
The military market is completely unaffected by the pandemic. These are big contracts signed years in advance. The military laser market has changed a lot in the past few years. More than a decade ago, the United States tried using lasers to destroy intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launches, but in fact it was a hopeless project. The U.S. military is now more concerned with defending against and destroying smaller targets, such as drones. In this regard, directed energy laser weapons have proved very effective. Other countries such as Russia and China are also developing these weapons.
As a result, the market for military lasers, especially directed energy laser weapons, is growing rapidly, including things like infrared countermeasures, military communication lasers, and other military sensor systems. Overall, the scientific and military laser market grew by 24% in 2020, completely unaffected by the pandemic. It is also expected to increase by about 25% in 2010.
