    Need driver help for 20-50mw laser

    I meant t I don’t get what y’all mean? The Mw/W of the laser, diode type, model number and amps needed is all you need? I just built a good 1.3watt blue laser with a resistor, capacitor, and lm317, why be so rude? It’s my first laser mate

    Need driver help for 20-50mw laser

    It’s a 650nm 28mw laser dot laser with a supply voltage range of 3 to 4.2V That’s all the info I have. I think it should need like 70mA.

    Need driver help for 20-50mw laser

    It is a red laser in an Aixiz module, How many mA do I need as an output? Or if I could make one how would you recommend I do so? or if you know where there may be some conversion charts or formulas for things like mw Thank you

    Looking to buy a 1w laser diode in an Aixiz module.

    looking for red, but if you have any other colors, especially exotic ones then I may want to buy those as well. 12mm would be cool, but I care more about the price than the size 😉

    Can a 1w 445 nm laser lit a termite

    If it’s thermite you want to light, then no. The laser won’t even come close to igniting it. I do believe termites would burn though.

    WTB Violet laser 500mW-2W

    either is fine

    WTB Violet laser 500mW-2W

    I am looking to buy a violet laser diode or full host setup + diode with a power of 500mW-2W.

    Cool experiments?

    Nah, its just that a lot of hobbyist built lasers have bad specs, red lasers are easier to make more powerful for hobbyists so I guess it is a misconception, but I dont know if my laser is powerful enough, so I guess I will find out. If not then I'll buy/build a red laser as well!

    Cool experiments?

    I have a blue laser with a power of about 1W. I have a youtube channel where I mainly make chemistry related videos but I wanna expand to lasers and whatnot as well. I want to do some cool experiments but I am pretty new to lasers. I am going to attempt to levitate particles with it but other...

    Got my new shades

    Awesome, be careful with those overpowered "5 mW" green lasers. They often also have infrared light in them and IR wavelengths start at about 700nm and end at about 1000nm. and NO, NEVER take the goggles off and look at any high powered laser, you WILL go blind. I would recommend recording it...

    Case for lasers?

    You could use a camera carrying case or modify a briefcase/carrying case if you don't wanna spend any money

    Hello, I am a new member

    I am from New York and I major in Chemistry but I want to get into lasers as a hobby because they are remarkably interesting.
