Lasers Refrigerate Water for the First Time


Still Waters

Since the first laser was invented in 1960, they've almost always given off heat - either as a useful tool, a byproduct or a fictional way to vanquish intergalactic enemies.

But those concentrated beams of light have never been able to cool liquids. University of Washington researchers are the first to solve a decades-old puzzle - figuring out how to make a laser refrigerate water and other liquids under real-world conditions.

Seems like one hell of a complicated process, from what I read. It's not like you shoot laser beams at something and it freezes.

Appears to draw a lot of power, too.

yup, it's a neat trick, but takes too much energy to be useful in a common sort of way? Same with the new virtually instantaneous SUPER heating lasers?
