These guys showed up in the mail today and so far they work great. Gotta love those perfect dots

Here is the model information
Helium-Neon Lasers He-Ne Laser - Modulated ML 868 - Industrial Fiber Optics, Inc.

These are obviously used units

I pulled one of the units out of its labby case - Please excuse my photos they were taken with a phone and then uploaded which seems to lower the quality a bit more





Plasma!




I turned the brightness all the way down for these next two shots so you could get a better look at the plasma and not just an orange blur





They have some cool inputs that can be used to transmit signals via laser





Again with the brightness down all the way and both bare tubes



And my gas laser addiction starts....now :D

Cool pics thanks for putting them up.
There is just something very "LASER" about the HeNe's;)

Okay, those signal inputs are effing cool.

Im going to be experimenting with those because im curious as to how well they will work. I assume I need some sort of photosensitive receiver?

Those are awesome.

I hope one day I too can get a HeNe :)
I may be selling one of these after I get them both cleaned up. Part of me keeps telling myself that I dont really NEED two of these haha

I've always loved that blue discharge. Can I steal the second image for potential avatar usage? :)

I can try to get a better one if you have a specific shot you want.

Well if you feel like it, try underexposing one stop (or so) and bumping up your saturation on that second image. Could be pretty cool. :D

Definately fun to see some good pictures of HeNes from MN!!!

And if everyone else drops their interest, you can always sell one (if you still are going to sell one) to a fellow Minnesotan!

Merged 3 consecutive posts

hey how much would a HeNe laser be worth, i got one a good while ago, i went through alot of (fragile)deconstruction to get it exposed down to just the bare tube.. this whole time i thought it was a ruby laser (i didnt know what i actually had) i wanted to try to modify it to give me a solid beam, until i found out it was a gas laser.. with as extremly fascinating as it is, i really have no reason to hold on to it, ive already shocked the crap outta my self once, and i dont apprciate it as much as you guys.. it still works great, id be down to sell it, or trade it for a more powerful laser if someone really wants it, lemme know!

i'll try and put some pics up of it soon

i do gotta say though, the bare tube is one of the coolest things ive seen, and the blue light in the mirror?? WOW!
