Compare the power density of a 450nm blue M140 1.4 watt multimode diode and a 175mw 450nm single mode diode after 1000 meters distance when using a 6mm diameter single element collimation lens (pushed hard, I don't remember the part number).

I am not aware of any 200mw or higher power output rated visible spectrum single mode laser diodes, unless at about 405nm. Although I believe some SM laser diodes may be possible to be pushed that high with reduced life expectancy. There is a problem pushing some SM diodes too hard, some break out of single mode when pushed to run very far outside of their design values.

Divergence calculator: https://www.laserworld.com/en/laserw...tml#divergence



I threw some beam diameter guesses into the equation, but at a far distance it won't make that much difference if I am off by a few mm there, for a given divergence figure.

If you can find the divergence of a specific 450nm single mode diode and plug the figures in you can get better numbers. Larger diameter beams produce different amounts of divergence for a given diode, the larger the beam diameter the lower the divergence. The above figures are assuming a 6mm diameter collimating lens which is common for most laser pointers.

This example is for a single element lens like the G2. Although the multi-element 6mm diameter lenses we are commonly using will produce a lower divergence than a single element lens, this is mostly due to their longer focal length and the resulting larger beam diameter filling more of the lens aperture (producing a wider or thicker beam out of the pointer). However, depending upon the specific multi-mode diodes beam characteristics, some having a wider angle of radiation out of the diode, the longer FL of the 3 element lenses we use allows too much of the beam to spread within the barrel of the lens holder before reaching the lens, often truncating, or cutting some of the beam off causing additional loss.

Sincerely investigate any of these three short quotes as new concepts and you've taken your first step into a larger world:

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness..." - Max Planck. "Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real" - Neils Bohr. "What we call physical things and events do not exist independently of subjective experience..." - Deepak Chopra.

Each of these three rabbit holes go deep, ending up in the same place.

Thanks for the feedback.
Thanks to Crazlaser I have realized that this is what I want:

https://www.sanwulasers.org/product/pocket

I love it even though the 445nm is multimode M140 diode.

I am going to buy me soon 445nm and 520nm.

It is beautiful and very portable (pocket keychain).
