Default Hand Held Pulse Laser from Crystal Rod Ruby HELP!!!

Ok, so I have no idea what I am talking about. No, seriously, I have no idea. I would like to make a handheld pulse laser. I have a 42mm x 3.5mm neodymium ruby laser rod. I also have a xnenon flash tube from a canon camera. Thats it. I have no knowledge, no skills, no experience (aside from a couple of laser builds).

I realy want to at least look into this, can anyone help me?

Is it ruby, or garnet? I don't think it can be both.

Either way, this is VERY dangerous. Start with class 3a or 3b.

I highly doubt a camera flash will have the necessary power to excite the rod.

You would also need a flash chamber to excite the rod from all sides.

Sorry, these are actually in paper! ( oh the horror, it is with me still!) I read in a book yesterday that 300v will KILL YOU. I almost never get the wiring just right on the first try, and I dont trust myself not to short something out and either die or become a vegetable! Not that I would care at that point, but I would hate to leave a mess...

Yes, a device like this utilizes high voltage that will kill by electrocution. No attempt to use or build a solid state pulse laser system should be by anyone not totally familiar with high voltage/energy circuitry. + Rep.

yup, these things can be nasty, my YAG has a a 330V 1200uF cap bank, its about 65J of energy. More than enough to knock you flat on your ass, or weld screw drivers together

So will you be selling the rod?

If it indeed is a ruby rod, it uses chromium as the medium. ND yag or glass rods use neodymium.

I don't think I can buy it, but post a thread in b/s/t and you will probably sell it pretty quick.
