Will this 445nm 1w laser curcuit work? and how well? please read description.

so i want to make a simple laser, but this time a good one... i have made a simple laser before however used a diode of 5mw. i want to make it 1w. what i mean by simple circuit is diode to circuit, circuit to switch, switch to battery (9 volts), battery to diode. hopefully i didn't just confuse you... anyways, my 5mw is still up and running after many months but i want to know if it will still last long as 1w and how long. if you can please include which driver is should use for a project like this and why. thank you for all reply's i get in advance.

That's an infinite recursive loop. You can't use the word in the definition OF that word.

I think he means driving the diode directly with the battery and circuit means wire...?

You will need to do some research and reading on Laser Diode
Drivers if you don't want to spend all your money replacing DEAD
Laser Diodes.

Thanks for the replies. So anyways I really want to build a laser gun, link at bottom and I just posted his simple description of how he did it... I'm new to lasers but I get it now. But help me build this guys please? I am on a mobile phone and so it's on mobile so I don't know how it'll work on a computer. Just search laser gun on YouTube and its a picture of an airsoft gun shooting a blue laser. Second video on my device.

Your thread is titled "Will this 445nm 1w laser circuit work?" But you haven't yet described the circuit. What are we supposed to say?

Re: Will this 445nm 1w laser curcuit work? and how well? please read description.

I mean this. (sorry for the confusion) i connect the laser diode to the driver, driver to momentary switch, momentary switch to battery(Li-ion recharhavle batteries), battery to laser diode, thus closing and finishing the circuit. Sorry. I just realized I put circuit instead if driver. So help me make it please?

The YouTube video belongs to one of our members (styropro).
You are basically correct in your method of connecting the LD,
Driver, Switch and Battery if the driver is set to the correct
current for the LD you are using and the Batteries are the
correct Voltage and Amperage.

Each Laser/Driver/SW/Battery combination is different.....
