25 Watt CO2 Laser - An Ultra Lasertech model PX2500 CO2 laser system. This transverse mode (TEMoo) continuous wave, sealed tube laser system produces a maximum of 25-30 watts of infrared energy at the output wavelength of 10.6 microns.

Nd:YAG Laser (pulsed) - Continuum Corp. model NY-61-10. This laser has both oscillator and amplifier rods, plus second, third and fourth harmonic generators capable of providing UV light with 170 mJ/pulse at 355 nm, and 60 mJ/pulse at 266 nm. Q-switching provides 4-ns pulses (266 nm) at 10 Hz repetition rate.

Helium Neon Lasers - Melles Griott, power outputs of 2.5 mW and 25 mW.
