As one of the countries that have the most advanced army weapons in the world, The U.S. military is always tried to invent and improve the army weapons into the highest level.

Recently, the U.S. military had declared a new high-power laser system. This incredible technology can be used to defuse unexploded mines more quickly and easily, thanks to a novel nanotube-coated power measurement device.

According to the news, the brand new Nanotube coating laser power meter is developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Before that, the developers have done various experiments on it.


Did you know that light focused from a 10kW laser is million times more intense than sunlight reaching the Earth? This device will be used to measure the light emitted by 10-kilowatt laser systems. The new power meter is extremely smaller compare with the previous ones. It’s only about the size of a crock pot!

The new power meter is slightly different from other power meters, as laser light is absorbed in a cone-shaped copper cavity. A spinning mirror will be used to direct the light over a large area and distributes the heat. The coating absorbs light and converts it to heat!

NIST claimed that the nanotube coating technology had already been transferred to industry for use in commercial products. [sciencedaily]
