It seems that there are some misconceptions/ misunderstandings about laser diode lifetime ie. MTTF/MTBF ratings.
I saw a post in another thread earlier today where people were discussing this, but it wasn't the thread topic and I cannot find the thread now.
Anyway, someone had thought that...

Spending a little time asking some critical questions can save you a lot of disappointment.
(hopefully this post can be made into a sticky so that it's read before making a bad purchase rather than afterwords)
Before placing an order, do a forum search on the product and company.

It only costs...

I promised Medussa I would get this one done today, so here it is.
I'm not shaking there in the beginning, it must be the focusing or something.
Well, maybe it was me just a little, I didn't have my usual coffee this morning :)
I made this new video today that shows the output power of a premium (to say the least) RPL.
I'll be adding more of these to the Optotronics gallery in the following days.
The next one of this series will show an RPL doing the "burn a hole through the film can trick".
See my comments in...
