As amazing as this is, with its ability to generate 3000+c temperatures at the focal point ... I can't help but be puzzled as to why the molecules of oxygen, nitrogen,water vapour, etc that occupy the space at the focal point itself do NOT ionize due to massive energy absorption. After all, we plainly see cellulose molecules (wood) and iron atoms placed at the focal point absorb huge amounts of energy and either burst into flame or melt.
