    Need Info

    Hey guys. I dont know if many of you remember me but I figured I'd check back now that I have some more money and free time to maybe get back into lasers. So whats new? Whats the hottest new diode? When I left there was some talk of laser laws. Any important changes there? Thanks in advanced! Nate

    My formal good bye (not forever though)

    Over the past couple months my life really took over and I just had to step back from it all. After months of doing NOTHING but laser related activities I just kinda lost most interest in them. I LOVE LOVE LOVE building things and I very much plan to continue building lasers, just at a "laser"...

    Please explain this...

    Hey guys! Well my 589 arrived today and when i opened it all seemed well, until the battery was inserted. As soon as I screwed the cap back on a BIG puff of smoke shot out the button area.

    I apologize

    I guess you could call this a formal apology of sorts. The thread I made jokingly referencing a contest between me and tmack caused anger from what I can tell. He even made a new account to show people he is not in it for the rep. I am not in it for the rep either and I apologize for such a...

    Lowering laser power.

    I still can't figure out a good way to lower the power of a laser diode. For example how would one lower the power of a pl450 diode? I thought you could do it with pulses but not sure for 100 percent. I was looking at getting. Pl450 down to 5mw but can't find a good solution. I know I asked this...

    Pulsed vs constant?

    Hey guys! So I have always been fascinated by pulse lasers for no particular reason. Is there many differences? I plan on making my own pulse laser just because I like them but is there any practical resons why pulsed may be better?

    I don't know where I should post this. Now to start I know a couple months ago I was new. But my first post wasn't for a high powered laser it was help for a driver. But recently every other post is some new person trying to get some retina destroying laser. Not trying to be an ass but I can...

    FDA tester.

    Hey guys! I'm sure you all are as interested as me into how hard the crackdown is. I took the liberty in ordering a 100 mw laser from aliexpress. In a couple days it will ship for the states and I'll post here the results. What do you guys think? Do you think it'll make it?
