    What do I need for this?

    What do you need it for?

  3. What power range? How portable? What wavelength(s)? What sort of firing,
    CW or pulsed? Do you want q-switching? Err, you have to come up with some
    parameters first. Then, probably some money.

    Try and find a book called 'The Laser Experimenters Handbook' which had
    details about how to build many different types of lasers, concentrating on
    mixed gas lasers (e.g. CO2). It had plans for getting the tubes blown by a
    glassmaker, gas percentage mixes and circuit diagrams of high power power
    supplies etc needed to excite the gas. I bought it from a second hand book
    store over 10 years ago and it's in storage somewhere but if I remember
    correctly it was pretty complete.
