LOL, i know ..... mine was a joke, sorryIt is possible to put an NdYag rod into that flash but you still need optics to produce a beam. Also, a Xenon flash tube produces output, some of which does not pump the rod. A cavity coated with Barium oxide helps convert some of the light into useable pumping wavelength. The current density in the tube also affects the wavelengths produced. It is more complicated than flashing a light at the rod.
