Well, in essence the forcefields they used on startrek are unkown. But, however nasa and the air force dedicates thousands of dollars every year toward "force-fields" and thier developments.

The only applicable shields/forcefields are plasma-based. Which uses electromagnetic fields to keep superheated plasma (ionized & superheated gas, usually oxygen) In a stable position.

The research is somewhere on space.com, the farthest they've gotton so far (to the public) only stops smaller lasers, usually below 3 kilowatts. any higher and it passes right through.

the guy said it felt like a mild tingling. Its not strong enough to stop solid matter though. It also sanitizes stuff really good.

for Star Trek forcefields, if you touched it, you would get a small electric shock (it prevents people from getting through, that might explain how it works a little
