Default Curious.. What does a blown Laser look like?

I was wondering if some of you unlucky people who damaged your LD, to become more like a LED, could post some of your pictures of it's output. *I wanted to see what it looks like.

And what have you guys done anything with it after it's blown? Used it in another project?

I sometimes use it as a test load. Other than that it looks like a dim red LED.

&quot;Curious.. What does a blown Laser look like?&quot;

Usually there is a dim red glow about it, it's very relaxed, and is generally smoking a cigarette.
