Red, you can also go for the "open can" diodes from user themonk, or wait until the next groupbuy for them sometime in the near future.

And like others said, green laser diodes don't exist yet.

No, they do. They're just the most inefficient pieces of crap you've ever seen. <1mW, huge power consumption, and more heat than you'd believe. They're also extremely rare. Mostly just experimental ones. Nichea is manufacturing higher powered 473 and 488nm diodes, and they said green is next on the list.

No, green laser diodes don't exist yet. *Green is *next*, but if anyone has ever made one, it hasn't been published, and when people make the first in the world of something, they generally do 2 things very quickly afterwards: patent it, and publish it. *If you can find a published green laser diode, I'd very interested in seeing it. *Lots of people are working on it, but no one has succeeded yet, at least not that has been published in any way.

As a person who is currently involved in researching and trying to make the first green laser diodes, I'd be very interested in seeing anything you have that says green laser diodes have been made. *Of course, Nichia *may* have working prototypes of green laser diodes that they haven't publicized at all, (and the research group I'm in does not exactly get along very well with Nichia, so they wouldn't tell us directly), but I highly doubt that they would have made the first ones in the world and not patented them in some meaningful way.

Edit to add: Also, looking at Nichia's website, they only have engineering samples up to 473+/-5nm, I don't see any 488 samples being offered.

Put very simply, there is an IR diode that is shone through crystals. The crystals change the wavelength in to green.
