From Bright Light Comes Black Metal

What exactly would come out if one could gather all the energy flowing on the entire North American power grid and force it running through a tiny fragile fuse? I will try to answer this question by presenting some of our recent work in studying metals using high-intensity femtosecond laser pulses. A highlight of this talk is one of our recent findings in transforming shiny metals totally pitch black.
