    The blue part of the light gets reflected from the Mirror(?) and the yellow one goes through... but why penetrates the blue part the mirror on his second try and the yellow gets reflected? If the mirror reflects the blue... why does it let it through afterwards?

    The vacuun is more complete than space? I didn't know that was possible.

    • creamythicchobknob
      creamythicchobknob 7 days ago

      I think what they mean by 'a more complete "vacuum" than space' is that space has got lots of contaminates such as dust, gasses, etc. However in the video is states that they have cleared the tube to be as clean as possible, much cleaner contaminants a reliable and accurate "vacuum" tube.
      Sidenote or fun fact:
      real vacuums are virtually impossible - there is still a type of quantum field that exists: the Higgs Field, which basically assings bosons (a type of particle) their mass. Without this, they would be considered massless. Unfortunately, one just can not remove this field from space, thus the quantum excitement of the Higgs Field - Higgs Bosons - exist *everywhere*.

    Actually linus the ktp laser Crystal's need alot more ir light then they release into green light do to the laws of energy conservation, you need about 100mw of ir light to make 5mw of green light. This is do to them having to dump alot of their energy into the crystal to get it to flores just like a ruby laser. Their super inefficient compaired go the more modern but more exspensive green lasers that dont do any light conversion.
