This demonstration, in which the laser beam is shown cutting a piece of cloth, was held in the Launch Pad gallery at the Science Museum, London. Laser cutting is accurate to a micrometre - one millionth of a metre - comparable to the wavelength of visible light, and has revolutionised precision manufacturing methods.
