     An archive of various articles and papers that are of interest to laserist.  This include information on laser colour balance, PCAOMs, 3D systems, system maintenance, interviews and occasional laser show reviews:

  • RGB Lasers for laser projection displays - Detailed paper in .pdf format which discuss the design and development of the first all solid state RGB laser system for image projection systems by JENOPTIK Laser, Optik, Systeme GmbH.

  • Visible Laser Line Spectrum Chart - By Brian
    This very large and detailed chart lists the lines (colours) in the visible spectrum produced by various types of laser with efficiency information.

  • Changing the tube in a Spectronika CV laser - By L. Michael Roberts
    The Spectronika copper vapour laser is a low cost, high power, air cooled laser. The laser uses a sealed tube design which lasts approximately 800 hours of operation before the tube must be changed. This paper covers step by step instructions for the tube change procedure.
