Laser gates

The duel between Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Maul is interrupted by laser barriers in the Plasma Refinery Complex.

Laser gates, also known as electron walls, were designed to protect high-security or dangerous areas by sealing them off with a wall of energy.

Laser gates were installed in the Plasma Refinery Complex on Naboo. The barriers were strong enough to easily block a lightsaber strike and would vaporize any matter that touched them. However, the generators were unable to keep up the immense energy needed to power the gates, and so they would cycle on and off approximately every five minutes. Each gate remained open for only around ten seconds before cycling on again.

These gates were crucial to the death of Qui-Gon Jinn at the hands of Darth Maul as the laser gates prevented Jinn's Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, from coming to his aid against the Sith Lord.
