Default laser bucket lists!

Hey,
I wanted to start a thread for laser bucket lists, lasers that you could realistically own in the long run.
For me, these are lasers I'd like to own before college:
  • 5mw RGB laser pens. Something I could let my friends play with without having to worry.
  • 50mW 532nm dazzler.
  • 1W 405nm laser. For engraving materials.
  • a 4W+ Visible wavelength laser. Something that has a nice beam.
  • a high power red laser. because I've never owned one.
  • A high power 532 or 520. I've owned a 200mW 520, now I want more green!


So, what's on your bucket list? gas? eximer? pulse? fiber? or maybe simply some humble, hearty pens. Share away!

Default Re: laser bucket lists!

I'd like to have a custom host for a Violet, Blue, Sky Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Red, lasers. Once I complete that I'd like to make a laser rifle in a Futuristic/Halo/Doom style of rifle host with a NUBM44 LD Array. And after that I'd like to make my laser staff with four 07Es and a 1W 7475 greenie

Well, if we're fantasizing about what we'd love to have, how about a 1 watt 589nm diode? single mode of course 8-)

I'd sometime this year maybe like to machine a dual-diode host and have two parallel beams. Maybe controlled by one switch or two, not sure on that.

Also I have yet to get my hands a nubm44

How was it compared to your 07e? Was it noticeably brighter, what current was the driver set at?

It had much greater divergence than the 07E but it burnt much faster. My 07E has a 3ele lens though while the 44 had a DTR G2. The 07E is at 3.5A and the 44 was at 4.5A. In terms of brightness, I think they were about the same but I think that has to do more so with the wavelength difference than the power difference.

To be honest, the 44 kind of scared me with how fast it burnt. I also burnt my foot on accident with it. And a few other parts

Default Re: laser bucket lists!

For the near term I want a complete 5mW pen collection of all the diode wavelengths. I want to get essentually all of the newer diodes plus 589nm, 593nm and 473nm.
For the longer time frame bucket list I want to get all of the HeNe wavelengths including infrared and maybe raman lines, an argon laser with 9+ lines, a healthy krypton, a large frame Ar/Kr ion that doesn't need three phase (SP-168 perhaps?), HeCd at both wavelengths, Cu vapor. At some point I want to make a single mode projector with as many wavelengths as I can, so 808nm, 660nm, 638nm, 532nm, 520nm, 450nm and 405nm.

I probably forgot something, but that is a quick overview.


tl:dr So I essentially want to get every lasing wavelength I can along with an example of every major diode model.

tl:dr So I essentially want to get every lasing wavelength I can along with an example of every major diode model.

Would love an SP-168 too, but they don't run single phase ... at least, technically not anyway. You need a big phase converter for one of those. Like this... http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/laserpic/phscnv1.jpg

There are small/medium frame Ar/Kr lasers that run single phase though.

I'll keep you in mind if I spot any US HeCd deals - you'll love it if you get one! Would love to get my HeCd back and add a 442nm HeCd to that too. One day maybe...

Not sure why you'd want 808nm in a projector but OK.

You can do Copper-Halide vapor at home, pure Cu vapor is a chunk harder - at least for the tube construction. Needs to be much warmer to get it to vaporize vs the Cu-Halides. Check Sam's FAQ if you're interested ... Again ... if I see anything pop up I'll keep you in mind - those "little" 10W(Average) CuBrs are great, and quite happily run on single phase.

----------------------

I'd love a big(ish) DPSS Q-Switched 532nm labby (10W would be plenty... ) - I'd actually love to build one but that isn't cheap - at least not compared to something used/surplus... Would be interesting to try and build a dye laser pumped by it (No shortage of yellow then...). Plus an SP-168 whitelight, my Kimmon HeCd that's still in Scotland, and a 442 head to match the 325nm head. TEA N2 might be interesting. Oooooh and I almost forgot, HeSe - that one's still on the cards ... a few years down the road when I have the tools/space to work on that. 24 Visible lines from one tube? Count me in!

Would be fun and eliminate the need to collect a lot of wavelengths.

It's 'later' now, so I have more information!
XPL can make a single-mode RGB build for $300 if we provide the diodes. This'll give us a final price of around $400-450 per unit.
Using analog modulation and an accessory, it can achieve infinite colors.



However, their electrical power has been cut until the 20th of September, due to the G20. The Chinese government wants to reduce pollution until then, and then start right back up again after that.

Fortunately, this'll give us ample time to set up a GB.

There are small/medium frame Ar/Kr lasers that run single phase though.

I'll keep you in mind if I spot any US HeCd deals - you'll love it if you get one! Would love to get my HeCd back and add a 442nm HeCd to that too. One day maybe...

Not sure why you'd want 808nm in a projector but OK.

You can do Copper-Halide vapor at home, pure Cu vapor is a chunk harder - at least for the tube construction. Needs to be much warmer to get it to vaporize vs the Cu-Halides. Check Sam's FAQ if you're interested ... Again ... if I see anything pop up I'll keep you in mind - those "little" 10W(Average) CuBrs are great, and quite happily run on single phase.

----------------------

I'd love a big(ish) DPSS Q-Switched 532nm labby (10W would be plenty... ) - I'd actually love to build one but that isn't cheap - at least not compared to something used/surplus... Would be interesting to try and build a dye laser pumped by it (No shortage of yellow then...). Plus an SP-168 whitelight, my Kimmon HeCd that's still in Scotland, and a 442 head to match the 325nm head. TEA N2 might be interesting. Oooooh and I almost forgot, HeSe - that one's still on the cards ... a few years down the road when I have the tools/space to work on that. 24 Visible lines from one tube? Count me in!
I though at least some of the SP-168's could run on 240V or 208V, Cause last year at SELEM someone had one running that I though didn't need three phase, IDK, might have been a rare(er) PSU? That's not my area of expertise, so IDK.

The reasons to have 808nm (maybe not exactly 808nm, could be 760nm or something close) would be to have the ability to draw graphics using only the infrared so that only the cameras could see it and not the people. Another cool thing you can use infrared in a projector is to use it to erase some GITD materials. At SELEM this year someone made a projector with 405nm and 808nm IIRC to make graphics on a GITD board.

Oooh yes, HeSe. I forgot about that. Every time I see Selenium on the periodic table I think "Hmm, someday I'll make a HeSe laser" although I know that the soonest I'll get/make a HeSe laser will be in 10-30 years when I get the "easier" projects out of the way and gain the necessary experience and knowledge.

And ruby, I forget to add Ruby laser to the list.

208V/240 three phase is a thing Maybe a different (there were *some* [third party as far as I know] PSUs that would run them off of single phase, I haven't ever seen one...)/heavily modified PSU - or a phase converter.

Ahh good point on using 808nm to discharge the GITD materials - I forgot about that! That GITD board they had up looked awesome.

Yeah, HeSe is a long way off for me too... Think I'll start with TEA Air/N2 first...
