        The best part is the + and – lasers on your PDF cause using just one would be ridiculous.

        I am willing to trade a probe against a set of super fast super rare Signetics WOM (write only memory) chips.

        I don’t buy the voltage measurement via laser probes, but there is http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/qre.4680090411/abstract for indirectly measuring current with a laser test probe.

        There is a device called a Laser Voltage Probe (LVP). It works by measuring the absorption of light in high electric fields. Google “lvp laser voltage probe”
