    Default Who wants a 15kW laser for XMas?

    found this article (13 nov 2008) on Northrop Grumman's fire strike 15kW laser weapon. Looks like a small package!

    I wonder what wavelength it is. 808nm? I couldn't find a mention on the page.

    I wondered the same thing. Maybe 1024nm?

    808nm would show up better on NV goggles, at least. I wonder if 1024 would.. I just have no idea.

    Where's our resident weaponized laser expert?

    I like how the alignment beam is 100 watts.

    Default Oh what a sweet way to cook a Thanksgiving Turkey

    Might be a little on the well done side though!
    clicking on my avatar will show the tricolor photocoagulator resonator cavity from a Lumenis Varia eye surgery medical laser, which i am attempting to refit. It originally was designed to produce 50-1500mw of 532 / 50-600mw of 659nm / 50-600mw of 561nm (Yellow)
    Clicking on my Avatar will show a picture of the inside of this cavity with a 1cm bar diode in the first of 3 OEM postions & KTP holder.
