|Burning Laser Ray Gun|
Build a burning laser system using our sealed CO2 laser tube with special cooling. High efficiency current controlled power supply delivers over 100 watts of power to this directed energy beam device.
Intended for engraving, cutting all kinds of plastics, cloths and similar material. See a weird effect as the beam cuts through over 1 meter of styrofoam block! When used with a simple lens this laser can cut through a rock. When used with a lens system, the air will actually explode at the focus point.
Excellent demonstration of future weapons technology.
|20 Watt CO2 Laser Tube|
|All glass sealed laser tube with cooling jacket, aligned mirrors and ready to use. Full spec brand new 600 mm long, 10.6 microns, beam size <1.5mm, divergence <1mr, voltage 20kv at 15 ma. Just hook up water and power and burn away. Includes all instructions to operate.|
Note: This tube is included in the LABURN20 kit and assembled laser, so you do not need to purchase it separately if you are buying the LABURN20 or 2K. But it's also available here separately if you need just the tube itself, for building your own design or as a replacement.

|Burning, Cutting CO2 Laser|
|Generates Temperatures Exceeding That of Most Cutting Torches!
Projects an invisible beam of heat capable of burning and melting materials over a considerable distance. This laser is one of the most efficient devices, converting up to 10% of its input power into useful output. Not only is the device a workhorse in welding, cutting and heat processing materials but it also is a likely candidate as an effective directed energy beam weapon against missiles, aircraft, ground-to-ground, etc. Particle beams may very well utilize a laser of this type to blast a channel in the atmosphere for a high energy stream of neutrons or other particles. The unit is built in two parts consisting of the water cooled laser head with a plasma discharge tube and necessary optics. A power supply is connected via an umbilical cord and allows remote control of the system. Device is easily applicable to burning and etching wood, cutting, plastics, textiles, trimming and light metal work. Special focusing lens available.
The carbon dioxide experimental laser is built from readily available parts and pieces. System advantages are low cost and versatility. Power output is in excess of 25+ continous watts @ 10.6 microns multimode when properly setup.
System is classified as a class 4 laser product and is labelled accordingly with all the necessary compliances as dictated by the NCDRH.
System is an axial flow water cooled design with external fittings for experimental gas mixtures. Factory setup will operate directly from readily available "lasermix" gas. Mirrors are internal and are easily removed for cleaning.
Output is more than sufficient for wood engraving, plastic and textile cutting as well as materials research. Laser will incinerate most flammable materials 3 to 5 meters from beam exit aperture -- without any optics! This is a neat demonstration for showing the potential use as a directed beam weapon! Adding a focusing lens will provide temperatures in excess of most cutting torches, allowing some interesting experiments.
Purchase of the kit includes all basic machining where assembly involves simple construction techniques. All glass blowing is predone and mirrors are cavity ready. The power supply is reasonably simple as it uses brute force step up transformers and variacs, etc.
A video tape showing optical alignment, "powering up" and operation is available. It clearly shows the potentials of this low cost system.
Purchase of the plans and video will be creditable to any purchase of this hardware.

|Laser Ray Gun|
| A Futuristic Concept!
Laser Gun - A prelude to a weapon of the future, the technology is here!
Now Available: hand held, battery operated, 500 joules of pulse energy produce an intense burst of light capable of burning holes in most materials.
Pulsed high power laser system is hand held and battery operated. Device is labelled as a class 4 laser product and meets all NCDRH requirements. It uses a 3"x1/4" Nd:Glass rod with integral mirrors as the lasing medium. Design is intended as an advanced science project or serious laser demonstration product.
Output is 1 to 3 joules at a 500 usec pulse width equating out to a 6000 watt pulse! This is sufficient to blast small holes in the hardest of metals once the beam is properly focused. Balloons can be popped from a distance or you "sharp shooters" may want to try a hand at popping some flys!
System is designed for very low duty cycle use eliminating the need for large batteries and cooling means. Normal operation from built in batteries is usually 20 to 30 seconds between shots. Good quality alkalines will supply 100 to 200 charges.
Construction utilizes readily available parts and materials. The cavity is shown using a simple yet effective two part ellipsoid reflector that can be fabbed in most home shops. The electronics uses our unique "loss less charging" where optimum efficiency is paramount. This electronics module is available wired and tested eliminating much of the assembly time. Energy storage capacitor bank and pulse forming inductor are also individually available.
Product is offered without laser rod or lamp for those who may already have these items. Rods and lamps may be individually purchased. A basic single collimating lens is included, or our LENSLAG1 is available if greater precision and transparencty is required.
It is suggested for further information to purchase the paper plans. These contain a HAZARDOUS EQUIPMENT AFFIDAVIT that must be signed and dated before we can allow purchase of the hardware. Plans can be credited to product purchase.
