Make Yourself a 1 Megawatt Laser Pulse Pistol


“German hacker Patrick Priebe recently constructed a laser pulse gun that looks so good, it could have easily come off a Hollywood movie set. Its sleek white and black exterior adds intrigue, but offers little warning as to how powerful the gun actually is.

Fitted with a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, it fires off a 1 MW blast of infrared light once the capacitors have fully charged. The duration of the laser pulse is somewhere near 100ns, so he was unable to catch it on camera, but its effects are easily visible in whatever medium he has fired upon. The laser can burst balloons, shoot through plastic, and even blow a hole right through a razor blade.

Patrick says that he is more than happy to help out anyone looking to source parts and build one for their own use, so what are you waiting for?”

    We will enjoy purchasing 1000 units as-is. It is a possibility to have the device smaller in size? If so, an additional ten thousand would be procured. Yours Truly,

      Um, hi Bin Laden. What do you need those for in hell? Last I heard, you were dead a long time before you even posted that comment. What, are you too evil even for hell?

    hi any chance you could send me a list of the parts needed to make the actual laser, not worried about the gun part, and how to put it all together please.

    I am curious about using rotating capacitor banks and new capicatortechnology. I think multi shots in the 50Mwatt range would be very possible. especially in a rifle configuration.-David Please contact me regarding this. I would like to build one.-David
