To reduce the size of my signature I'm posting my favorite laser tech info links here, I will be updating the list from time to time. Only posting my signature links right now, will add more as I have time.

Edit: I will also add other general laser links later, as the forum rules permit.

Divergence to spot size calc: pseudonomen137's JScript Diameter Calculator - 1 mRad is about .057 degrees which expands to be roughly ~10% the diameter of the moon or sun at their distances.

Divergence Calculator: pseudonomen137's JScript mRad Calculator - Measure your lasers beam dia. at 1 foot & then 20'.

Online calc. to determine spot intensity at different mRad's & powers: http://tinyurl.com/divergence-calculator

Laser Power Density Calculator: Laser Power Density Calculator - Ophir

Angular Size Calculator; use with diode angle of radiation spec. for lens dia. at FL:

If anyone else would like to add their favorite laser information links to this thread, please do, but I would prefer if this thread does not become conversational in order to keep the thread smaller so members do not need to scroll through pages of text to find more links. Please only post once and edit in your updates as you need to.

Thanks!
