Laser_Ben... don't you have a 60W 532nm laser?

I can see where you might need 45W of green for a laser show to cover a very large area or distance, but 325W?!?! If you looked at the focal point of that laser (let's assume it's hitting something that it can't instantly burn thru!) w/o eye protection it would way worse than looking right at the sun at high noon on a clear day! Get hit in the eye /w/ something like that and you don't just have a retinal injury - you have a hole in your head where your eye used to be!

On another note, I wonder why both of these lasers aren't CW? That would be even more awesome - 325W of continuous power. Usually, for a laser show, you'd want a CW beam.

Those kinds of powers are only obtainable from a lamp-pumped q-switched system. If yo pulse at 25 kHz, let's say, then the effect will be an unbroken beam to the eye. The beam would have to be moving extremely fast for you to notice the pulsed nature of the beam. The 325W output is the average output, each pulse is many hundreds of kilowatts in that Mamba. And yes, even looking at the diffuse spot at close range on either of these systems is very dangerous and can cause damage, to say nothing of a direct hit.

To do outdoor beam shows requires a lot of power, and if you really want to take 30,000-150,000 people's breath away, a Laserscope (or clone) is the way to go. I would think that the Mamba would be overkill even then. I imagine it is intended for industrial use.

The Mamba is a diode pumped system, it runs at 20kHz. They are primarily used for material processing in fabs.
