How rugged is your laser?

Often laser users find they spend half their precious research time aligning their laser or tweaking the harmonics.

Well, Quantel Big Sky Lasers are different. They are designed to be rugged and to keep alignment no matter what you through at it. In this video, we strapped a Big Sky Ultra (with 2nd harmonic) to a paint shaker and it coped just fine thanks very much.

Sure, it's unlikely that you'll ever attach your laser to a paint shaker, but these tests show just how rugged and reliable these lasers are. You will forget all about alignment and tweaking and the laser will sit there quietly doing its job.
