BTW regular mirrors are not really suitable for this, since part of the ray is diffracted by the glass itself.
Regular mirrors gives you 2 rays, one with ~90% and another one that is parallel to the first, 10% of the power (or 80% / 20%, depending on the mirror quality).
The space between 2...
Good news at least :)
I hope I will have an assembled driver, for I have no skill at all at soldering.
I suppose most of your barrels will be used with BR and phazor diodes.
It would be a nice idea to make a tutorial with pics, I don't want to burn my phazor when assembling it !
Thanks for all...
My wife hates my lasers.
My children love them.
My cat loves the red one, but not the green one.
My father loves them and sometimes use my <5mw red to bother pigeons (I told him not to, but he is old enough)
My mum hates me because I let my father play with "such a usefull thing" ;D
Thanks for the answers.
I tested with 2 AAA batteries and 2 rechargeable ones, and got a better spot with non rechargeables.
I know about the "true" power of those pointers. I just wanted a clear beam at night and it's enough.
BTW, my daughters wouldn't appreciate to see their balloons popping...
It's about batteries.
I've bought a cheap green laser pointer from eBay, it is said to be 240mw (but I know it's not).
It needs 2 AAA batteries, and I have some rechargeable ones.
Since rechargeables are 550 mAh, do you think can I use them instead of regular AAAs ?
This is an example of beam combination.
Sorry I can't post links yet, just cut and paste :
Cube beam splitters are not that expensive, I'll try when my bluray LD is OK :)
