Due to modern technology man has reached to a stage of creating the sun artificially on earth (laboratory) through the process called nuclear fusion. The energy requirement to start the nuclear fusion reaction and other important research inventions are relay on a very important branch of Physics called Non-linear Optics”, said the senior scientist Dr H L Bhat of IISc Bangalore.
