Welcome to LPF Hobnob!!!!

I hope you find this a great environment to learn all that you can about lasers.

Since I am new as well (I have things figured out fairly well), you can ask me any "newbie" questions you have. I don' mind it at all.

Good luck with that argon laser!

Hey GM, were those the pics with the little silicon diffraction gratings? I got one from Hak. No multiline myself so it'll have to wait for proper use but nice little optics.

The Argon I sold Rob was outputting just a shade over 20mW at maximum. Single line 488nm. I was sad to see it go actually. I checked the one I had lined up but it was out of alignment since the last time I had it fired up so had to let my best one go to honour the deal. D'oh!

Rob seems pretty keen and I think he will love it here. He's at the same college as I am, studying engineering. I don't think his mate quite got the gas laser thing when he came to pick it up. I had a little chuckle to myself about that!

Good to see you here Rob, I know you've been lurking for a bit but now you've introduced yourself you can get a bit more involved.
