Is it possible to build a laser that carries mass? Or impossible?

I understand what you are thinking Op, in fact, i had the same idea as a teenager who was very much into physics. But the answer is a resounding no. Not with our current understanding of the physics invloved (which appears to be correct sicne we use it for many physical applications).

I cant see any way that the laser beam photons could ever intereact with matter and then carry on going at the speed of light. Photons cannot be slowed down or sped up. And they certainly dont bond with anything.

In case you are going to show me links to light slowing down (i.e: through a medium...its not that simple, but the individual photons are not being slowed down)

Nice thinking outside the box, but wrong in this case im afraid.

Maybe a kind of particle beam would work, look at the "tractor beam" from sonics.

A great post. Nice writing!

Lasers are often described by the kind of lasing medium they use - solid state, gas, excimer, dye, or semiconductor. Solid state lasers have lasing material distributed in a solid matrix, e.g., the ruby or neodymium-YAG (yttrium aluminum garnet) lasers. The neodymium-YAG laser emits infrared light at 1.064 micrometers."

Yes I am thinking adding particles to a laser would bend time and space. With light speed or faster we could reach places with lasers that some people could never think of.

Do you think adding a curve wave to the laser so a human could be the particle?

If so we could time travel.

it doesnt work like that mate.

I know it does not LOL. Just adding my thoughts. I hope you are well.
I wish it did we could travel far in no time.

Well, hey, who knows. Give it another 100 years and maybe we will find ways of bending Mr Einsteins rules.

By the way, my sad face i added was because i wish it DID work like you said.

I respect you in many ways. You posts are always full of logic. When I was new on ATS you
were the only person who responded to me with a happy face.
