Completed litary section, more to follow. Can military specialists please check that I've used the correct terminology for the weapons, etc. -- DrBob

When lasers are used for range finding, is it simply the time it takes to bounce that is measured, or how the reflecting waves interfere with the waves being emitted? I suspect it is the latter in most cases. I am not sure though... The article states it is always and only the bounce times that are used. Bertus 12:54, 28 September 2005 (UTC)

The part on laser cooling is incomplete and slightly inaccurate. Although it is true that the technique can be used to cool trapped ions, it was originally developped for neutral atoms. Furthermore, to my knowledge, trapped ions cannot form a Bose Einstein condensate because they are spatially separated (they cannot be made to populate a single potential well because they repel due to electrostatic interactions). I will edit this when i have time, but for the time being i think it would be wise to hide most of the paragraph.. or maybe replace the word "ion" by the word "atoms" ? -- michaelmestre 11:10, 18 March 2006

Someone should also mention the ultra precise (up to 0.001mm) lasertracker applications, e.g. by leica. penis

Recent real developments[edit]

Sorry, but this needs to be sourced. Please have a good read of our verifiability policy. It's unsourced, therefore it cannot be in the article. It's as simple as that. — Werdna talk 09:23, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Japanese Star Wars?[edit]

"Also, Japan is making an anti-ICBM laser system estimated to be active in March 2008."

Reference 6[edit]

Reference 6's PDF is "Not Found." it must be marked as a broken reference. 68.190.118.106 (talk) 03:04, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

List of laser applications switched[edit]

Maybe this article should be called list of laser applications, since people might try to type in list of laser articles or topics.Or could make it as a redirect.Shawn Worthington Laser Plasma (talk) 20:30, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Since there was no objection to this and it seems reasonable, I moved the page.--Srleffler (talk) 04:31, 4 July 2012 (UTC)


Laser Sight[edit]

Is there any possible reason in the world for "Laser Sight" not to have its own page? It is notable, and really quite distinct from "list of laser applications." There probably ought to be a "Laser Weapons" page too, but that is not quite as ridiculous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.246.154.230 (talk) 04:55, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
