Default Hi

I'm new here at this forum and I really don't know much about lasers. I currently don't have any lasers at the moment but I'm working on building my first laser with a PS3 Blu-ray diode and hopefully it works out.
and I hope to meet and make some new friends here.

Hi Zim

The PS3 laser won't work, you need the PHR diode from the X-Box External DVD drive if you want a blu Ray laser

Read the stickies and welcome to LPF

Default Re: Hi

Welcome to the forum, Zombi! Some lasers of the PS3 don't work at all, hard to enclose in an common module as I heard. Others are 5mW violet, 5mW red and 5mW IR on the same diode! (4 pins) but they are very expensive on dropshipper sites (around $50) so it is not worth the high cost.

You should consider buying yourself some goggles if you're experimenting with 405nm lasers; they are very close to UV range thus can cause dangerous photochemical reactions on the eye.

LASE SAFE!

Hmmm wtf?
Looking the diode from the back, you should see:
____O
O_______O
__O___O

(ignore the underlines). The red is the positive and the black is the negative. I don't think these output more than 10mW tho.

Default Re: Hi

do some research. It should draw very little current (around 40mA). The other pins are for the photo diode, for a red diode and a IR diode, all in the same can.

Default Re: Hi

It's interesting that you don't consider your name a proper noun, but you consider the word "new" a proper noun.

Feel free to make yourself a thread of your very own, then you can hear all about not getting scammed or buying from wicked lasers.
