European Stars And Stripes (Newspaper) - November 8, 1967, Darmstadt, HesseArmy research officer demonstrates a gun which projects a laser Ray. A continued from Page 11 Forth Between the silvered ends with photons becoming More numerous and the beam accordingly growing More intense until it has sufficient strength to break through the partially silvered end of the Ruby. This ultimate outburst features Light beams that Are almost parallel the fac Tor making possible the projection of narrow Ray Over vast distances and with spectacular Energy. The laser beam gains its special efficiency from what Are called fre Quency coherence and spatial Coher ence. The laser s spatial coherence Means simply that the wavelets of Light travel together in step being likened in this instance to a Well trained racing Shell Crew As compared to a gang of castaways aboard a raft each paddling his own Way without coordination. While the weaker lasers such As theone that was on display at the recent photographic exhibit at the . Trade enter in Frankfurt Are capable of Burn ing flesh after prolonged exposure Gamma Ray laser if the problems of developing one could be surmounted would qualify As a full fledged death Ray. First off Radiant Energy which take the form not Only of visible Light but also of radio Waves ultraviolet and infrared Light x rays Gamma rays and cosmic rays May be thought of ast Raveling in Waves electromagnetic forms of Radiant Energy Are conveniently arranged according to their wave lengths a designation defined As the distance Between one Crest and the next or one Valley and the next. From Crest to Valley and Back to Crest constitutes a Cycle and the number of cycles per second which a wave under goes determines the frequency. The higher the frequency the greater the Power to penetrate. So if a Gamma Ray with its extremely High frequency could be controlled you could readily wipe out All the people in your , that application is Likely to take a Back seat to More humanitarian goals in the immediate future at least everywhere but Hollywood where the multipurpose laser seems to be re placing fun Manchu As the celluloid world s Foremost villain.
