    Cool

    Yeah, a few people have linked to it in the past. It's a really nice tool, especially for some of those really weird lasing lines (copper bromide, HeCd, etc) that you don't run across every day.

    If you need to ask the question 'whats so good about a laser' - you won't understand the answer.

    Show offs!

    One of these days I'm going to get Clandestiny to bring one of his copper vapor units to SELEM so we can all see the lovely greens and yellows.

    And while I can't begin to compete with Jon (to say nothing of Steve!), to my credit: I used to have an IR HeNe, along with a pair of green HeNe's and one other HeNe that lased orange at around 620nm or so. (It's amazing what you can get off E-bay when you buy HeNe heads in bulk!)

    I sent all of these tubes (and about a dozen more) to Sam Goldwasser a few years ago. He went through each one to see if there was anything that could be salvaged. One of the greens was dead, but the other was making something like 600 microwatts. He still has it. The IR HeNe wasn't lasing, but he wanted to keep it because he thought he could make it work. And the orange one was only making .5 mw, but it was a unique color so he kept it as well.

    The rest of the tubes were dead, save for a few that had loose conections on the head. He sent back the ones he could save (two of which are still lasing at over 7 mw), stripped the optics off the dead ones, and sent me a bunch of alden connectors and some extra test leads for my oscilloscope in payment for the rest of the heads he kept. (Truthfully, I had no use for the ones he kept anyway. In fact, I thought they were all dead already. I sent him the heads so he could salvage the optics before disposing of the tubes...) I was so happy that he got a couple of the heads working for me that I sent him a pair of dinner gift certificates for his trouble.

    One of the members here (WeakStation) used to have an ILT krypton with either RGB or RYGB optics in it... I think he sold it though. And I remember someone else talking about a HeCd unit they had recently. But beyond that, the rest of the wavelengths Steve mentioned are pretty esoteric; unless you're in a lab you'll probably never see them.

    Adam
