Default Pre-Review: Ultra Lasers 50mw 473nm Labby

I was bit by the 473nm bug. I purchased one of those CNI surplus 10mw 473nm labbies and very quickly wanted more of those gorgeous light blue photons (if they are particles, if they are waves then i want more of those vibes). but i digress. i looked around and decided to contact my pal shawn wang at ultra lasers. they make decent laser systems. back in 2009 i bought a 100mw 532nm pointer that is going strong to this day. in fact, well more on that laser later.

I will post pics and LPM graphs laster on. for now i will tell you that this laser is measuring 160mw after warm up and is very stable. that's WITHOUT IR. its emitting about 15mw of IR with the filter in place which is not bad. measured on a kenometer pro and ophir sensor.

Not only is 160mw of 473 very spectacular, the beam from this laser is very narrow at 1mm at the aperture and the divergence is about as good as my ALC60X argon! in fact, the beam quality is in the same calibre as the pointer I bought from them 2 years ago and both are the best diode lasers in terms of beam narrowness and smallest divergence.

The best part id the price, at $350 list.

The >50 mW laser is doing 160 mW? Thats awesome!!

I'm buying a PGL-III-C 80mW (doing 100 mW in reality)In 2-3 days... And I can;t wait.

@ Krogith, yes I know, it is awesome. Shawn of Ultra (great name!) told me that all their lasers are over-spec and that the 50's often do over 100 stable. he lives in the same city as me and so i went to his place to pick it up and selected one that he knew did well.

The thing is blowing my mind. I dont know how they are getting so much 473 power out of it with such a narrow a collimated beam. i am used to higher powered DPSS lasers having a much wider beam usually because they use larger crystals to get the power.
