The Laser Power property of an object represents the rate that energy from a laser is added to the object over time. Laser Power is a read-only property that is continually calculated by Universe Sandbox.

Property Details[edit | edit source]

Location[edit | edit source]

For Planetary Body object, the Laser Power property is located in the Energy Flow section of the object's Surface tab, when the Energy Absorption Rate property is expanded.

Units[edit | edit source]

Laser Power can be viewed using the following units:

  • Solar luminosity (L star) = 3.846×1026 W
  • Watts (W) is the SI unit for luminosity.

Simulation Effects[edit | edit source]

Temperature[edit | edit source]

Laser Power is one of several sources of energy that can increase an object's Average Surface Temperature. If no laser is hitting the surface of the object, the object's Laser Power will be zero.
