Although I will add that I'm quite possibly the only person on here who has actually made a laser diode, so trust me when I say you can't do it at home.

Let me google that for you
Let me google that for you


And I'm sure you can find the "Buy, Sell, Trade" section, "Group Buy" section, and the "Tutorials" section on here as well. I don't link them because, well, they're all pretty super easy to find.

Although if you're hoping I have that elusive orange laser, you'd be mistaken. 593.5 is what I'd call "amber", and 635 is what I'd call "bright red". I show the 635nm as orange in my sig because, well, that's just the tag I used to differentiate the colors from each other. They're both pretty much red though.

true it does separate the lasers spectrum

fyi colour from the frequency/wavelength is just our brains interpretation.

If you want a cheap orange laser you can try super cooling a high power 635nm laser diode. You can get it down to about 615nm I think.

Hold on i got 3 more posibilities for orange :

1. Buy a 500mw ir laser, buy a orange and burn a hole into it untill it comes out from the other side,...

2. Call a extraterrestrial and ask him to make one for you, i'm sure he could make one @ home.

3. Make a a reflective square box that is reflective from the inside(or another reflective shape) connect a white light source into it so the light can't escape and then make a hole into it and connect a focusing lens with a orange filter.
