Green Burning Ebay Laser!
link for laser: ZER-VISIBLE-ADJUSTABLE-BEAM-/231011433506?pt=US_Laser_Pointers&hash=item35c 95abc22 I recently got a laser off ebay to see if it would burn as stated. It does burn but I'm guessing a significant portion of it is IR but it still makes for a cool laser. If you liked this laser check out my other videos here:

New Airborne Laser TestBed Footage, Missile Shot Down 2/11/2010 First Successful Test
Read more, here: _202004-1.html February 11 2010. A modified Boeing 747-400F with more than 7 tons of optics up front and a megawatt-class laser in back destroyed a liquid-fueled ballistic missile target while both were in flight. The Missile Defense Agency's Airborne Laser TestBed reportedly carries a megawatt-class chemical oxygen iodine laser that's coupled with precise pointing and atmospheric correction equipment. And it has now proven capable of knocking a ballistic missile out of the sky. The system is the result of a cooperative effort led by Boeing, in partnership with Northrop Grumman (which supplies the laser) and Lockheed Martin (which is developing the fire control system). The aim is to deter enemy missile attacks by disabling the attacking missiles while they are in the Boost phase. That means hitting a target capable of 4,000 miles per hour with a beam of light traveling somewhere close to 670 million miles per hour. The U.S. Missile Defense Agency hopes similar devices will one day be able to track and attack multiple targets, at a range of hundreds of kilometers, at at a lower cost than current technologies." But For now, the price of the program is a problem. Defense Secretary Robert Gates canceled what had been an order for a second airborne laser system. The original, will continue to participate in experiments.

Airborne Laser Knocks Down Test Missile YAL-1
Courtesy: DoD Missile Defense Agency Feb. 11, 2010 - At 8:44 p.m. (PST), a short-range threat-representative ballistic missile was launched from an at-sea mobile launch platform. Within seconds, the ALTB used onboard sensors to detect the Boosting missile and used a low-energy laser to track the target. The ALTB then fired a second low-energy laser to measure and compensate for atmospheric disturbance. Finally, the ALTB fired its megawatt-class High Energy Laser, heating the Boosting ballistic missile to critical structural failure. The entire engagement occurred within two minutes of the target missile launch, while its rocket motors were still thrusting. Click to subscribe! The most viewed aviation channel on YouTube.

US Navy's New Killer Laser Gun: LaWS Laser Weapon System Live-fire
The Laser Weapon System or LaWS is a directed-energy weapon being developed by the U.S. Navy. The AN/SEQ-3 Laser Weapon System or XN-1 LaWS is a directed-energy weapon developed by the United States Navy. LaWS uses an infrared beam from a solid-state laser array which can be tuned to high output to destroy the target or low output to warn or cripple the sensors of a target. ( Video shows the LaWS Operational demonstration aboard USS Ponce. During the test, the LaWS hit targets mounted aboard a speeding oncoming small boat, shot an UAV out of the sky, and destroyed other moving targets at sea.
