    Custom made Copper Chloride Laser (CuCl)

    I achieved this by using high power fast hydrogen thyratron, which is driven by a smaller thyratron. The master oscillator is built on vacuum tubes. more information is in my CVL thread (Lightsaber copper vapour laser)

    Custom made Copper Chloride Laser (CuCl)

    Some time ago I visited my fellow glassblower and he made this laser tube for me from fused quartz. It has two side arms for placing copper halide in them an electrodes taken from linear flashlamps. I placed then the copper chloride that had unknown purity and quality. It had already changed...

    Homebuilt Manganese Vapour Laser (MnVL)

    I have spare mirrors, but firstly I'll try to clean dirty ones.

    Homebuilt Manganese Vapour Laser (MnVL)

    Today I've loaded this laser tube with lead. The buffer gases are the same, operating temperature is much lower. Optimal PRR is low too. I saw lasing on 722 nm, it is still quite visible. It is a bright red spot with magenta tint. Output power was quite low, possibly some tens of mW. It couldn't...

    Homebuilt Manganese Vapour Laser (MnVL)

    So, I have been away making a new fully homebuilt laser. It is a manganese metal vapour laser. The laser tube is fully homebuilt. It is a self-heated tube. The main part of it is a ceramic bore tube with 14mm inner diameter and 60cm long. This tube is sorrounded with a layer of ceramic wool...

    565nm DPSS labby

    I tried looking for it through "565 nm laser" search query. but didn't find it. I'd like to buy a couple of them to have a volatile exchange fund, for converting them into gas lasers then:yh::yh:

    565nm DPSS labby

    Is there a chance that these lasers will appear on e-bay soon?

    Argon laser - Is this worth of buying?!?! Help

    I think that cooling it with a fan will not harm.

    Argon laser - Is this worth of buying?!?! Help

    This is normal for the MOT. All of them become very hot because the iron core works very near to the state of magnetic saturation. To reduce the heating it would be good to add a couple of tens of turns in the primary.

    Trying to build an insane 532 nm laser

    I think I will return to this project soon, as I've made the GOS1001 laser working. I've drawn a rough optical layout of the green laser. It will utilise 2 130W pumping chambers an a big lithium niobate crystal. Will this layout work? And where can I get a curved HR mirror for 45deg reflection?
