Efficient Laser Supply Circuit

Posted on Sep 27, 2012

Driving Helium-Neon Lasers can be simplified considerably using This power-supply configuration. When power is applied, the laser doesn`t conduct and the voltage across the 190- resistor is zero. However, a resonant circuit and a voltage tripler then produces over 10 kV to turn on the laser.
