Can an old, dead, RF excited 12 Watt CO2 laser tube be
sent overseas? Seems this is old technology
but I'm not ready to find out if there's problems.

I posted this under gas lasers and got no replys yet.
Thought I'd try here.

Legally I can't see why not Mike...
Since it is dead you are basically sending a glass tube.
The only problem I could see is it perhaps breaking in
transport.

I'm guessing the reason you're asking is because there are export restrictions on the SSY-1; that's because they're taken out of Abrams tanks and sold as military surplus.

This isn't any sort of military technology and technically is a laser component - so there shouldn't be any export restriction. Moreover, you shouldn't have any issues getting it through customs in any country (Australia included) because, as Jerry said, it's really just a glass tube and is not a functioning laser.
