The team 3D-printed chicken samples (3 mm thick by ~1in2 area) as a test bed and discovered that laser-cooked meat shrinks 50% less, while still retaining double the moisture content. It even shares a similar flavor profile when compared to conventionally cooked meat. Read more for two videos and additional information.

They normally came in 60, 150 and 200cm sizes, all of which were capable of receiving signals from a control station. An operator would then switch the searchlight on to start the arc burning, while also ensuring that the carbons used to create it are burning correctly and that the beam is focused.
