The superlaser was the primary weapon of the Death Star, a powerful laser weapon. It was powered by eight kyber crystals which would combine into a single focused blast of incredible power, capable of destroying an entire planet. It was employed on both the original Death Star and the second one; used both to destroy the planet Alderaan, as well as several Rebel capital ships at the Battle of Endor.
