World's Most Powerful X-Ray Laser Will Show How Chemical Reactions Happen


The official opening ceremony of the $1.4-billion X-ray Free Electron Laser took place in Schenefeld, Germany on Friday. The laser is over 200 times faster than every other laser in the world and it's blistering rate of fire allows it to perform a unique mission. The laser will be able to capture how molecules move and change within chemical reactions. Using an advanced Large Pixel Detector, the XFEL will produce “molecular movies” for the first time in science history.

  • Czech ‘Super Laser’ Could Be The World's Most Powerful

    One research group in the Czech Republic claim to have built the most powerful laser in the world. Lasers are becoming more and more important for the advancement of industry and laser technology has been developing at a rapid pace. British, Czech and other scientists from all over the world tested a super laser they claim to be ten times stronger than any other in existence in Dolni Brezany near Prague on Thursday. The device, called Bivoj, which is named after a mythical Czech strongman, was developed by a team of 280 scientists and technicians as a joint project by Britain's Central Laser Facility and High Average Power Pulsed Laser, or HiLASE, a Czech state research and development project. Bivoj weighs around 44,000 pounds, puts out over 1000 watts of energy, and costs about $50 million. The researchers expect that the machine will make waves in industries such as semiconductors and metals processing. Of course, Bivoj may have some military uses as well.

  • Modern Day Alchemists Grow Silver Crystals from Copper Waste

    This may look like some ordinary, run-of-the-mill factory, but there's some modern day magic going on here. Row after row of metal is dipped into a special liquid called copper anode slime, a waste product that is made during the production and smelting of copper, and that's when the unbelievable starts to happen. Just like in the olden days of the alchemists, these industrialists are turning base metals into silver.

  • Main challenge of the Paris terror trial 'is to show the world that, in the end, justice has won'

    A French court is to hand down verdicts Wednesday against 20 men accused over the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris, after a marathon 10-month trial that reopened the scars of modern France's worst peacetime atrocity. One hundred and thirty people were killed on the night of November 13, 2015, when a team of Islamic State group jihadists laid siege to the French capital, attacking the national sports stadium, bars and the Bataclan concert hall. The trial that began on September 8, 2021, has been the biggest in modern French history, the culmination of a six-year, multi-country investigation whose findings run to more than a million pages. All the attackers were killed in the aftermath of the assault except Salah Abdeslam, who was captured alive by police four months later. Abdeslam is the key suspect among the 20 accused on trial, six of whom have been tried in absentia. If convicted, he faces the toughest life sentence available under French law. Joining FRANCE 24 is Clemence Witt, Lawyer of the foreign victim's families. For her, "this trial was an extraordinary one. More than 3000 victims were represented during this trial, 400 of them being heard by courts. A special courtroom was built and there were almost 150 days of hearings. So we have all this context, absolutely extraordinary. And I think the main challenge of this trial is to show to the world that, in the end, justice has won."
