TBF, current military lasers are much smaller in scale and lower in power than the ones in COADE. https://childrenofadeadearth.wordpress.c...ton-lance/ Quote:Thermal lensing increases $[Image: latex.php?latex=M^2&bg=ffffff&fg=000000&s=0]$ roughly linearly with input power. This means if you have 1 kW laser with a $[Image: latex.php?latex=M^2&bg=ffffff&fg=000000&s=0]$ of 1.5 (which is reasonable), this means dumping 1 MW into that same laser will yield a $[Image: latex.php?latex=M^2&bg=ffffff&fg=000000&s=0]$ of about 1500 (going the other way does not work, since $[Image: latex.php?latex=M^2&bg=ffffff&fg=000000&s=0]$ can’t be less than 1). ADDED: Also, the Expanse ships don't have radiators. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
