  • Soldering
    Soldering (AmE: /ˈsɒdərɪŋ/, BrE: /ˈsɒldərɪŋ/), is a process in which two or more items (usually metal) are joined together by melting and putting a filler metal (solder) into the joint, the filler metal having a lower melting point than the adjoining metal.
  • Laser rangefinder
    A laser rangefinder is a rangefinder which uses a laser beam to determine the distance to an object.
  • List of laser applications
    Many scientific, military, medical and commercial laser applications have been developed since the invention of the laser in 1958.
  • Laser Weapon System
    ("LaWS" redirects here. It is not to be confused with LAWs.)(This article is about LaWS, the US Navy laser weapon system. For other laser weapon systems, see laser weapon. For the concept of a laser weapon system, see directed-energy weapon.) The AN/SEQ-3 Laser Weapon System or XN-1 LaWS is a directed-energy weapon developed by the United States Navy.
  • Bubblegram
    A bubblegram (a.k.a. laser crystal, 3D crystal engraving or vitrography) is a solid block of glass or transparent plastic that has been exposed to laser beams to generate three-dimensional designs inside.
  • Iron Beam
    Iron Beam (Hebrew: קֶרֶן בַּרְזֶל, keren barzel) is an air defense system currently in development by Israeli defense contractor Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.
  • Laser line level
    A laser line level is a tool combining a spirit level and/or plumb bob with a laser to display an accurately horizontal or vertical illuminated line on a surface the laser line level is laid against.
  • Laser guns
    Laser guns describe guns converted from their regular ammunition to using lasers to hit reflective targets.
  • Laser level
    In surveying and construction, the laser level is a control tool consisting of a laser beam projector that can be affixed to a tripod, which is leveled according to the accuracy of the device and which projects a fixed red or green beam along the horizontal and/or vertical axis.
  • Photonic laser thruster
    A photonic laser thruster (PLT) is a concept for space propulsion that works on the principle of a photon-pushed sail, generating thrust directly from the momentum of a photon from a laser reflected from a mirror.
  • Laser beam profiler
    A laser beam profiler captures, displays, and records the spatial intensity profile of a laser beam at a particular plane transverse to the beam propagation path.
