Femtosecond laser shines light.The femtosecond laser was developed at the Dept of Energy's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory: see Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
(body) Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory - (LLNL) A research organaisatin operated by the University of California under a contract with the US Department of Energy. (LLNL LLNL - Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory ) in partnership with the Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant, Oak Ridge, TN. The laser's "pulse length" removes material atom by atom, with the material vaporizing rapidly and leaving the part in a plume of ionized i·on·ize

To convert or be converted totally or partially into ions.
i plasma. Known as the Laser Cutting Work Station (LCWS LCWS Linear Collider Workshop (annual international event)
LCWS Lancashire Computer Waste Services (UK)
LCWS Local Commercial Workstation
LCWS Live Chain Workflow Studio ), it is capable of handling a variety of materials of various sizes and shapes. The workstation operates at 10 kHz (10,000 pulses) per sec. Each pulse includes 12 watts of energy focused on 0.0001"x0.003" spot--enought energy per square inch to easily surpass the material's boiling point.
