I've been lurking for a long time and finally had something interesting enough to post about. An excimer head turned up, which is not the most typical thing to find lying around. I thought others might enjoy seeing it.

So I may as well introduce myself in some way. I operate bunkerofdoom.com, an electronics hobbyist website for those who use high voltages, tubes, and RF stuff. No ads, message board, or registration. Pretty much a document/download resource that people are also free to contribute to.

I use lasers as tools and so there's not much laser info in the hobby-oriented Bunker but maybe that will change if I can devote more time to this interesting subject. Hope to pick up some good knowledge here. My favorite hobby/study laser is the CO2 and flowing TE types followed by diodes and arrays.

In ancient times, I serviced laserdisc players under warranty and used to replace 5-10 HeNe tubes a week when they fell to 0.9mW and could not be used to read the discs any more. Rebuilding and aligning the optical platform was always enjoyable work and in those times a good used HeNe tube was not a common item; was still considered high tech and most people had never seen a red dot in person. A lot of fun was had, and it looks like the fun never really stopped and it just comes in more colors now.
