    Default Coherent's Throwback Thursday - (FAO: Eidetic)

    Reposted from Coherent's Facebook page, I thought it would interest some "laser historians"... Eidetic(!)

    Throwback Thursday. A look back at a Coherent ad, circa 1960s, announcing Coherent's first 75 Watt CO2 Laser. Cigars Included.

    ..hah! just great.. This was found in a 1966 'Playboy mag', right?? I mean, if that's not a 'ya, just have a look at our big di..s' ad, I don't know what is..
    ....and armed only with his trusty 21 Zorgawatt KTiOPO4...

    Here's the lab they built the first one in, and the introduction announcement for this laser. I should mention that Coherent has one of these heads but no power supply. If anyone ever finds another one of these, I'll be all over it!
