CONGRATS GAZOO

Dude! You must have been in AWE of the color! ;D I know I was when I first saw it... granted, the first time I did see it I was so happy for all of a couple seconds... and then the diode died... I think it's still embedded in the wall from how angry I was after it died! >

You gotta break some eggs to make an omelet, right?

Anyway... very happy to hear it Gazoo... the color is definitely special... and quite attractive... you'll forget time staring at it... I know I did :-[

As about the red... it's a run-of-the-mill red laser diode as you would find in any reader... the circuit from the AixiZ housing should be able to power it :P (hint, hint )

I think I would have broken a window with mine if it didn't work! I have broken many eggs... ;D I am happy this wasn't one of them.

I am definitely in awe at the color... So far I have put 34ma's into it. The beam is weird...it comes out really fat and focuses to a pin point...definitely different than the reds...but it is beautiful..

I will work on the red later...red is boring compared to this..

I went and applied 40ma's. I think this is going to be the limit...it is a very nice color and the beam looks good.

It's weird how fat the beam appears coming out of the laser when looking towards it from a short distance. I don't notice this with the red beam.

It's UV... the beam will always BoGgLe your eyes a bit... the dot can be the size of a grain of sand, but you'd see it as if it were the size of a quarter from all the 'sparkle' around it... ;D

It's really an amazing color!

Stop talkin about it guys :-?I'm gettin jealous here as I have yet to receive my units here in Aus.

I am still waiting on the red GB too...I now have everything ready to make like 10 lasers (Blu Ray and Burning) - except for the diodes ;D

How does your skin react with 405nm?

How are you guys fitting the BR diode into the aixiz housings? I remember someone saying they used a dremel, but what bit? I had trouble with my first two, having to file the diode's edges down a tiny bit to fit them into the cheapy collimator housing I happened to have lying around. I have the aixiz now, but not looking forward to that part...

I actually managed to 'sting' myself with one of my diodes, pre-destruction. I shortly thereafter lit a match using a lens, but I'm quite sure I was overdriving the heck out of it!

It should press in just like a regular red diode since it is the same size. You do need to remove the glue from the diode after you remove it from the heatsink. I would be surprised if anyone would find the need to file the diode down to make it fit into an Aixiz module.

They should fit perfectly just as a red diode would.

Sting? With a BluRay? What were you using? An engineering sample? These run over $10,000 you know... :-? :

You can't get a BR hot enough to light a match... I would bet money on it... not a diode from a reader... impossible. These things are so sensitive that powering it at 60mA could kill it right away... To get the kind of burning power that would 'sting' your skin you're looking at several times that power... Which is not possible... Also, to light a match you'd need AT LEAST 40mW of power... And that would take a little while too when collimated to a needle-head sized dot... the diode would die before getting there, let alone staying alive through the burning process... :

I'm telling ya, man. I lit the match. I saw smoke at first and thought, No freaking way... Then it ignited. I giggled. Loud. I'm not ashamed to admit it. *I did of course, have to sharpie it.
It was one of the ebay PS3 modules. I got it on ebay from wiivendor I think... Sure I know there are differences in tolerances, and will take your word that it's highly unlikely. I suppose I got a fluke diode or tapped into a zero point energy field unknowingly! Maybe it was pyrokinesis on the match, and psychosomatic on the skin!!

I SWEAR, I was SO excited about it, I was going to do it again and video it.
But, it blew. So I honestly have no idea how it happened. I'm fairly sure I was using the 2 CR123's and a resistor in series with it. It may even have been direct. I was having a LOT of trouble getting it to lase anywhere near as bright as I thought was comparable to the pictures I'd seen. Even taking into account the difficulty in photographing that wavelength.
Thinking back, I think I was using a cheapo pot. that was in the little assortment pack from radio shack. The one I blame for frying the diode. I think it failed at some point, because that sucker was HOT when I disconnected the diode when it died. Really really hot.
I did of course use a lens. I used the magnifying bit in my SwissChamp for both the skin sting and the match light. I was NOT able to reproduce this with the second one, and from the sounds of it, I'll have to start saving to get something that is capable of doing these things in green or red. Or wait for a blu-ray burner to become more affordable.
I wouldn't lie to you guys!

I'll try to get a picture but remember, what I see is the beam hitting a piece of typing paper which always lights up under UV. *Last night, I was most concerned about mA and mW. *That blue dot on paper may be deceptive.

Mike

The camera can't figure out the bright spot.
