You need to read LOTS of threads in the experiments and mods section if you want to learn to build a laser - TONS of info floating around in there :-)

Senkat (or other mod), i think u should post a stand-out stickie for the newbies advising them to read/research before posting for info on building a "burning laser" after they've watched the now infamous DIY video(s). Basically what you instruct all those who post this and similar questions.

It would be helpful and it will save u guys repeating yourselves. 8-) Just a thought...

Well, I WOULD agree - but...(you knew that was coming, right ?) none of the folks that come on here hoping to make a deathstar read any part of the forum anyways, so a sticky would be more clutter unfortunately. NOT catagorizing all the new folks into this bucket, it really just seems like 90% of the first posts are, " I came here to build a burning laser, someone tell me exactly how to do it through the whole process" and not like this, " I read everythibng in the experiments and mods section, and I have a question about ....."

Know what I mean ? To quote someone famous - "The good Lord helps those that help themselves" Oh one more for the road while I am quoting people, here's one of my favorites (from ME coincidentally, LOL !!), " READ LOTS !"

LOL. I see your point. I thought maybe something titled "SO YOU WANNA MAKE A SUPER DUPER POWERFUL BURNING LASER.....READ THIS FIRST(or START HERE)" But i guess they will still post and you will still answer :P Nevermind

well one thing to note is that a dvd-burner diode is red, and a cd-burner is infrared, so dvd-burner is what you want. however, not all dvd burner diodes are usable, so it's best to get a diode from one of the group buys here. and as far as i know, diodes can be run either pulsed or CW, but CW will be a lower mW. same actual output though?
