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.
|These are paper plans, requiring parts and assembly: 46 pages of schematics, instructions, and experiments (also available as downloadable plans for roughly half the price).|
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, while our LI-ION batteries, which can be recharged hundreds of times, will be almost limitless.
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 transparency 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.
