A laser called Octopus

There's still a few more videos to come from Backstage Science, and here's the latest.

Octopus is a very cool name for a laser with different "arms" coming from a central hub.

Though it does lose a few cool points when you learn the name's an acronym for Optics Clustered To OutPut Unique Solutions.

But we don't have to talk about that!

You can learn more about lasers at the STFC's Central Laser Facility at this link.

And here's another backstage video about lasers at the STFC.
