    One of the highest power lasers in the world sits on a table. It emits pulses that last approximately 16 fs, and contain 103 mJ of energy. "fs" indicates a femtosecond, which is 10-15 seconds. a) What is the average power associated with a single pulse? b) What is the physical length of this pulse? c) When the beam exits the laser, it is approximately 30 mm in diameter. Molecules begin to ionize when applied electric fields reach approximately 8.680e+09 V/m. To what diameter must the beam be focused to reach this electric field strength?
