    505nm and 480nm diode RESULTS

    So then if that is wavelength at threshold, higher power might be a few nm further up?

    M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

    for the heat sink Ill be taking an intel stock cooler, (75W+TDP rated) and boring a hole through the center slug to mount the laser's 12mm copper module. that should certainly be enough.

    505nm and 480nm diode RESULTS

    how much would you ask for a 505 case neutral one? it seems these case positive ones are going to be slightly more annoying to drive than I had anticipated.

    M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

    hmmm, I do not think I will try past 1.9 amps, I cannot afford another fried diode.

    M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

    I know, at 1.8 what sort of shift would I be looking at? (compared to normal the nominal 462 nm)

    M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

    Sorry for the ambiguous post, I meant the M462 462nm If I could push it a bit further towards 480 or so that would be great.

    505nm and 480nm diode RESULTS

    so where are you all getting these diodes from besides DTR? If I could get a ~500nm one that would be fantastic, I would happily pay the full $35 or so.

    M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

    I am assuming at a full dive current or 1.8-2A it would be closer to 470nm? because I think ~485 is the best blue around so if I can get it closer that is better. As for the PSU, I am replacing the potentiometers driving it, it was an amazing PSU for the price, however it does has some made...

    M140 diode @~1W Eating Matches

    and now it is dead, my power supply has touchy knobs, and I was a bit unsteady that day, so I accidentally completely removed the power limit, and the diode got 8v and 5 amps across it... I am now after a M462 462nm as it is a nicer blue and nearly the same power. sorry I never got beam pics up.

    505nm and 480nm diode RESULTS

    and those (the 505 or lower) are coming from sources other than DTR? I would rather buy from DTR though. Although I have noticed there are indeed many of these diodes on Ebay now.

    I second this idea! bring the beam shots please!

    505nm and 480nm diode RESULTS

    if those 505s can drive that high (even 50mW is enough for me) then I think I'll get one. although that means I will have to go build a new current limiting source. (my old one was meant for working at 1+amps).

    505nm and 480nm diode RESULTS

    you are right, I suppose 589 is really orange, but until I see some 577 in real life, that LPS 589 is how I view a quality yellow. I am trying to find some 580nm LEDs. So then those 594nm "yellow" neon lasers are really amber. Sorry for derailing this thread. As for these diodes, I noticed...

    505nm and 480nm diode RESULTS

    But 590 looks yellow, I mean low pressure sodium is about a yellow as you can get. I suppose 577 would be a brighter yellow though. I feel all the way out to 600 is still on the yellow side. are there any up an coming diodes in that area?

    505nm and 480nm diode RESULTS

    I really like the idea of a ~480nm laser, that sky blue color is otherwise only obtainable by argon right? likely a stupid question is there any work being done on ~590nm diodes? because I really want a yellow laser that I can actually afford and is stable.
