Light amplification jet engine?

  1. Dec 31, 2011 #1
    Using a series of focal reflectors, built in antenna strategically placed for proper phasing the EMF amplification system. Kinda like a space hyper engine. Possible? I can draw some blueprints I think.

    That sounds interesting to me. I would like to hear more about your hypothesis.

    I need to incorporate the math into all my shapes, but I got a general vision I just need to model it. It's New Years tonight so I think I'm heading out. But the idea is to bend the light using a parabolic reflector through a coiled laser chamber and amplify it out the exhaust. Which can be operated as firing away from it's greatest source energy, or pulling towards it. Onboard power systems for sure.
