I'm wondering if multiple (say red) lasers are available in a single package?
A line of ten with a separation of 2mm would be perfect.
Or alternatively SMD ones that i can solder myself?
Ideally including mini lenses for parallel beams..
It doesn't sound that outrageously esoteric to me. It's the kind of component you'd think would be commonly available. There are plenty of them for LEDs, but not laser diodes as far as I can see.
