    Hey there:

    How good are you at glassblowing? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    The easiest gas laser to make from scratch is a nitrogen laser.

    The easiest DPSSFD laser to manufacturer from existing components is a 532nM unit.

    I would say you need to read sams laserfaq, however if you are seriously contemplating this you will need to absorb the laserfaq.

    I will admit, if you built a laser for a school science fair you would almost be a shoe in for 1st place... Potato clocks are so boring [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]



    The easiest
