Welcome to Laser Pointer Forums - discuss green laser pointers, blue laser pointers, and all types of lasers


I’m a virologist and general science geek with a love of lasers! I use confocal microscopy a lot for my research and it’s a running joke around the lab that I have more lasers at home than we have at work! (Not true but I’m not correcting them ;) ) I fell in love with lasers as a little kid seeing a green laser used to point out stars at an observatory - I didn’t know they came in green! I was hooked, and I wanted my own. Many years later, after building my own light dump and creating powerpoints, I convinced my dad I was responsible enough for a powerful laser, and I got my first ever, an Arctic spyder III. And the hobby has just kept going since :)
