Laser technology allows research into the laser based weapon systems used by a number of defensive structures and ships. This technology is also a necessity for expansion into ion and plasma based weapon systems.
Researching Laser Technology beyond level 12 currently has no known benefit.
In physics, a laser is a device that emits light through a specific mechanism for which the term laser is an acronym: Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers have many uses to the empire, from upgrading computer communications systems to the creation of newer weapons and space ships.
