    Anyone familiar with these "picosecond laser pens" ?

    Seen them for 50$ on Wish and Ebay from time to time.

    Anyone familiar with these "picosecond laser pens" ?

    Hello all, Lately on Ebay and Wish I've been getting suggested a lot of these "picosecond laser pens" that are supposedly for tattoo removal, they all seem to be made by this company "Neatcell". I've tried looking up how they work but mostly all I can find are reviews by people swearing they...

    taking apart an old WL Fusion?

    Hello, I was digging through my box of lasers and I found an old Wicked Lasers Fusion that I bought off this forum years ago. Sadly when I put fresh batteries in it it doesn't appear to work anymore. I suspect the battery contact inside the laser are corroded but I can't reach anything down far...

    Popping balloons with lasers now has a legitimate military use.

    I feel validated now :D

    cutting clear acrylic with a 445 diode?

    Alright, I gave a couple types of coating a test. From left to right: "wrought iron" black paint, black acrylic paint, white acrylic mixed with graphite, and clear nail polish mixed with graphite. After hitting each area with my 1.7 Watt 445: After washing off the paint: So not the...

    Does laser safety goggles filter out the blue light wavelengths of LEDs?

    I've been enjoying watching this thread, and I decided to do a little experiment of my own. Heres my computer monitor displaying full red, full green, and full blue, as well as a full white and full black area for reference. Heres the same image through a pair of "blue blocking" computer...

    cutting clear acrylic with a 445 diode?

    Yeah I was thinking of trying to mix some fine graphite powder with a clear base of some kind to make a dark paint. I don't expect it to work well, but the only way to know for sure is to try.

    cutting clear acrylic with a 445 diode?

    That's what it's looking like sadly from what little I can find about it. Looks like Co2 is the only real viable way of cutting it. Apparently UV below 300nm would work but deep UV means either an expensive and exotic diode or an expensive and exotic gas laser. Ah well. Maybe coating the...

    cutting clear acrylic with a 445 diode?

    So using a Co2 cutter at work really has me wanting a laser cutter of my own, but due to monetary and space constraints I think a Co2 cutter is out of the question for the time being. So the next obvious choice would be a nice diode laser, probably a 445nm since those are the most powerful...

    What I've been up to in my absence

    Dont think so. The only vehicle mounted lasers I'm aware of are the ranging lasers on the tanks.

    What I've been up to in my absence

    Thought I'd make a thread showing what I've been doing in my year+ absence from LPF. So about a year and a half ago I finished a 2 year college program for Digital Media, and through the college I was given the opportunity to become an intern at the local military base, and so for the past...

    I'm back and I brought a Co2 Laser with me

    Yeah I was looking at prices for optics on ebay. A lens was around 30$ (But Im in Canada and our dollar is crap) and mirrors were about 15$. I'm just wondering if OEM lens will cost more because "oem" but I still don't think it will cost too much. I was actually surprised how cheap the optics...

    I'm back and I brought a Co2 Laser with me

    Hello! Been a long while since I've been on here. Basically a year and a half ago I got a new job as an intern photographer for the Canadian Military and I haven't had that much free time, and I'll admit my passion for lasers dimmed a bit, which is a shame really considering I have more income...
