I am just getting into this and realizing I have so much to look forward to and learn., these pics are for sure inspiring! (and that list of ions in your tag line made me jealous 😁 - My sad gas laser tag line would read: (No coherent photons being generated at this time) SP multiline argon that I somehow think I destroyed almost immediately but got me hooked on gas lasers and am still crossing my fingers I can fix one day
Deconstructed confocal parts:
-Olympus/Omni/Melles probably SL 488 from confocal but have no idea if works since waiting on power supply to arrive and crossing fingers on both
-Showa GLG5416 632.8 and GLG7000 543.5 HeNe's that may or may not work since I can't for the life of me find a female Q series Alden connector with the square/round plug to build adapter and don't want to hack the laser heads or my power supplies yet...maybe tonight.
