Haven't had the money to do anything interesting with lasers recently, so I've concentrating on my Biolab.
There's a skip I generally trawl for lab gear, and I found this awesome laser + dye pump. A quick forum search turned up nothing.

I broke my 200mw red and am saving up for a powerful green for home lab experiments.
Most of the discussions seem to favour portable lasers, so I hoped to ask those with experience of lab or industrial units.
I'd like to experiment with power scaling, pulsing, water cooling and...
I was wondering whether anyone here had experience with laser made Ion Channels.
I don't know whether this effect occurs because of a high electric flux or as a result of the photoelectric effect.
Would a Q-Switched CO2 laser do?
Or a free electron laser tuned to the correct frequncy.
