    UV, Violet, or IR which is best for burning?

    ok but lets say a CO2 laser has about 10000nm wavelength as compared to a generic laser diode with wavelength 1000nm (for simplicity). that means with the same power the generic laser is 100 (10 x 10) times less powerful (power per unit area) than the CO2 laser. nonetheless CO2 lasers are still...

    UV, Violet, or IR which is best for burning?

    hello, it is said that CO2 laser is more powerful to burn as a shorter wavelength is more readily absorbed by the material to burn. but a CO2 laser has a wavelength of 10600 nm that is much longer than red, blue or green. am i missing something?

    which hand held laser to buy...?

    I understand, so once the threshold is reached they can be driven at different currents to achieve different output powers...instead of a diode that is specced to be used just at one particular power setting. makes sense. thanks

    which hand held laser to buy...?

    I can guess but what do you mean by multimode diodes and how do you know that the o-like uses them and not the spartan? thanks Jan

    which hand held laser to buy...?

    Hey wow I didn't see the tactical on the O-Like site. great stuff. i already have a few ~5mW pointers in red and green and a module in red 150mW and one in 500mW so I really want to get something a little more powerful. I just meant that I haven't done too much research before of what is good...

    FS: TANK007 Complete Build Kit

    looks very nice. i like the idea of the tripod. what is the highest power module you can offer in your kit? can you offer 1000mW blue? thanks Jan

    which hand held laser to buy...?

    hey thank you very much. this really helped a lot. i was browsing on CNI's site for the first time exactly at the time you sent me your reply... i had not hear of the other two companies o-like and rayfoss. i am looking for a high power laser. it seems as Spartan Series 1W Blue Handheld Laser...

    which hand held laser to buy...?

    hello everyone I would like to state one more time maybe a little clearer and organized. Of the listed lasers below, which ones can any of you recommend, which ones not and why...? -http://www.dragonlasers.com/product.php?productid=16456&cat=357&page=1...

    which hand held laser to buy...?

    thanks a lot. one more question, comparing blue with green laser now, for burning purposes does a 1W green laser have the same effect as the 1W blue laser. or can one or the other burn better...? this one seems a really good deal...but not too many specs especially of the manufacturer...

    which hand held laser to buy...?

    hello, my name is Jan and I am new to this site. I have a few lasers already but mostly just modules and I would like to purchase a handheld high power, either blue or green. I have seen several around 1W lasers available in different price ranges. Maybe you can help me and give me some advice...
