7 Emerging High Power Laser Technologies 29 Fig. 8 The plasma channel of an LIPC device is not visualized well. The laser that ionizes the air does not use visible light and the massive electrical charge is very bright. Since a plasma channel is made of positive and negative ions, it acts as a good conduit for electricity in free space; until something large gets in the way, like this car.

If the team can reduce the diameter and project the toroid further, one can envision a plasma channel for a lightening bolt that can be fired without the need for a blooming laser.
