Default New to lasers!

Hello everyone,
I am completely new to lasers and dont know a whole lot about them. I am very interested in the science behind them and want to learn how they work and what it takes to build them. I ordered parts to build a 1w 445 nm laser and should start that in a few weeks. I ordered the parts from DTR and survival laser and also ordered a good pair of goggles (OD4+ 190-540nm & 800-2000nm).
I will create another thread in the right section for when i build it. Could you guys guide me to some good books, videos, or articles i could read to get a better handle on the science behind lasers?

Glad i found this forum

Also, i have been reading about IR filters and was wondering if i need to worry about that with my laser.

No, you don't need an IR filter for a 445nm laser. Only green 532nm and yellow 589/594nm lasers use those for the most part.

Welcome jallis11.
Off to a great start and this place is awesome with awesome members full of great info.
Also, as you know, safety is paramount so good on you for ordering the Goggles and Survival Lasers are great to deal with, as is Jordan from DTR.

Looking forward to you build.

“He who believes in Him is not condemned;

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Just a quick tip about lenses. G2 lenses are for close up burning and engraving. 3 element lenses are for better beam shaping at the sacrifice of some burning power. This isnt all there is to it but worth mentioning to the newcomer. I thought the G2 was simple better since it was 3x the price. Thats just not how it works.
