I'm making a fairly hard Sci-Fi story, and I was wondering what the most scientifically plausible Hardlight-based 'energy-shield' (for ships and stations) would be. My world tries to remain true to basic physics, but I'm not researching every law and limit to get it perfect. If it's not possible by our current understanding of physics, what should I change to minimize the number or obviousness of the flaws in its plausibility?
- With Hardlight I refer to a solid like, but no limited to the described in Observation of a Dissipation-Induced Classical to Quantum Transition by James Raftery, Darius Sadri, Sebastian Schmidt, Hakan E. Türeci, Andrew A. Houck.
- With Hardlight Energy shield I refer to a Energy shield based in the foundation of hardlight.
Abilities of the Energy Shield:
- Projectile reflection.
- Electromagnetic protection against arbritary wavelenghts depednding in the configuration.
- Configurable to do (1) or (2) or both at the same time.
