The invention of the laser -- more than 50 years ago -- that has turned up in everything from Compact Discs to laser pointers, now has a new enemy: the "antilaser" -- the first device capable of trapping and terminating laser beams. The device was created by a team of researchers from Yale University and is capable of absorbing an incoming laser beam entirely. But the antilaser was not developed as a defense against high-power laser weapons, said the researchers. While such a device seems...

Technologies for using laser energy to destroy threats at a distance have been in development for many years. Today, these technologies -- known as directed energy weapons -- are maturing to the point of becoming deployable. High-energy lasers -- one type of directed energy weapon -- can be mounted on aircraft to deliver a large amount of energy to a far-away target at the speed of light, resulting in structural and incendiary damage. These lasers can be powerful enough to destroy cruise...
