"How about this graph?" That graph had a span of 0.0015nm. Hardly enough to push 808nm into the visible. You were wrong.
"Well that can only mean the light is so dim that your spectrometer can't detect it." Well if the spectrometer can't detect it, I probably can't either. And therefore your original claim that the light we see from an 808nm laser diode is in the visible (commonly understood as 400-700nm) is WRONG.

Oh, THEN the backpedaling REALLY starts. "well if I'm wrong about that, then... YOUR COUNTRY SUCKS!"

Laughable. You're not a scientist, you're a politician.

Where did i say "that means"?? Wrong again!! You are mixing things um and making your own conclusions!! Or at least trying this way to discredit me.
It was just an example for visible light even not being detected by a specturm anylizer and the more seen by passing a defraction grating.

Dont remember ?????

Sure i canīt. But can you prove it was not?? Itīs not an IR laser but a blue one and if you would take at least a look at this forum this guy was mentioning several weavelenghts in the blue area as he was analyzing a blue diode.

Thats true. Its a red laser. However it dosnīt produce a single wavelenght like you are claiming. It was also not a laserdiode but a gaslaser. However. even if the difference of a gaslaser is really small. Maybe within a few Kiloherz. There have been several weavelenghts, not just one. Again you are wrong claimning a laser emits just one wavelenght!

And you are absolutely sure? Obviously not. Else you wouldnīt say yourself " I probably canīt either"

This isn't a matter of opinion. It's a matter of science. It's a matter of the eye's sensitivity not instantaneously ending at a precise point. It's a matter of the composition of the laser die.

It's a matter of you not knowing what the hell you're talking about.

Read until nonsense stops dripping from your mouth.

Yes Iīm reading enought. But prefer other surces that are more trustful rahther a bunch of guys playing with lasers and thinking they know everything about them. Sure there are for sure also members here really having a clue about lasers but itīs for sure not you.

So you or anyone first tell me the difference between a Fabry Perot and a Distributed Feedback Laserdiode. Then you can start to criticize me. Else not.

BTw. I know the difference and you obviously not.Also to lazy to read about it. But not to lazy to critiscize someone else.

Okay, let's assume for a moment that IR diodes do also emit in the visible spectrum.

We've had 20+ years to figure out how to exploit it. Where is my multiline laser diode?

Default Re: 808nm laser visibility

There are already prototypes but not on the marked. There are also already prototypes where the beam dosnīt need an extra collimation. So in the future you can expect diodes where no collimation lens is needed. And also diodes with several wavelenghts being amplified. Itīs all due to the amplifiing mirrows and now they found a way how to do that. We just have to wait a bit till this new technology will be mainstream.

Then you will have a laser with a very thin beam and with a very big photon density.

Itīs all due to the amplifiing mirrows and now they found a way how to do that. We just have to wait a bit till this new technology will be mainstream.

Then you will have a laser with a very thin beam and with a very big photon density.
Lasers that don't need collimation? Those are lasers with long cavities, like HeNe's.

Lasers with a thin beam and "big photon density?" That's all lasers, chief.

"Amplifying mirrors?" Hm, that would be all lasers. Again.

So, I asked about multiline laser diodes based on your phantom visible emissions in infrared diodes. You said there are prototypes. So, where are they?

Default Re: 808nm laser visibility

Iīm actually speaking about laserdiodes. Not gaslasers. Was reading an article about that a feew weeks ago. But it was german so I have to find it first an translate for you. Will take a look tomorrow as iīm going to bed now. If i find it, i will post it.
