    Help on pulse laser diodes?

    I am looking to make a low power pulse laser (<500mw), I have found a diode at 400mw when pulsed (Sony SLD3237VF). I just need a circuit design for a pulse laser or some, if anyone knows a guide or such that would be very helpful :)

    Struggling to put 3.8mm diode in to housing

    I am struggling to put a 3.8mm diode into its housing. My usual approach to putting in diodes is to bash it in with some metal tools however due to the small size of the diode and the static sensitivity of it, i am struggling to get it in without killing the diode. I do own a vice but im not...

    Help with capacitors and Battery voltage?

    So i think i should add a capacitor to my laser in case of voltage spikes. However i really dont know which one i need. I am going to power a 50mw laser with lm317 (i also want to know what volatge should the battery be???). Will a 25v 10uF capcitor be appropriate???

    First Post, just need some help

    So for my first laser i just want to build a simple <100mw laser and i would also like to build the driver as well because making one without a driver is too easy. Anyway I'm looking for a laser diode in this range however all the listing on ebay (for me) usually have drivers included unless...
