Formation of vacuum cavities in the atmosphere by methods of laser optics of neutral particles

V. V. Demekhin


A method is proposed for establishing cylindrical vacuum cavities in the Earth’s atmosphere by laser field with an artificially created gradient of intensity and of frequency. As distinct from the method of generation of vacuum cavities in the atmosphere realized in the U.S.A. (the HAARP program), in the new method the dimensions of cavities and energy expenditure for their formation are substantially smaller while the spectrum of applications is much wider. The time of formation and dimensions of the vacuum cavities may reach values permitting to improve the quality and range of action of laser communications and optical location, and to diminish the aerodynamic drag of flying vehicles at comparatively low energy consumprion.
