Generation of vacuum tunnels into atmosphere

V. V. Demekhin


It is proposed a method generation of vacuum tunnels (VT) into atmosphere by means of gradient force of laser fields. It is shown to build microscopic VT expulsive force of light beams (LB), located at Archimedes spiral in a region of narrow (~1 mm) coaxial layer at a boundary of VT and LB operation area, located at a circle, enveloping the light spiral, is sufficient. Average pulse power of LB is not greater than average power of gas-dynamic laser, based on rocket technology.
