1. A light source, comprising:

  • a chamber comprising a reflective surface;

    an ignition source for ionizing a gas within the chamber;

    a reflector that at least substantially reflects a first set of predefined wavelengths of electromagnetic energy directed toward the reflector and at least substantially allows a second set of predefined wavelengths of electromagnetic energy to pass through the reflector; and

    at least one laser external to the chamber for providing electromagnetic energy to the ionized gas within the chamber to produce a plasma that generates a high brightness light.
