    Am in China now!

    Once upon a time... I posted a thread that I was going to China and how this might impact my laser hobby. Now I am here and at the request of a user in my first post, I made this second post. Any follow-up comments or suggestions on what to do in China? I noticed that certain things don't...

    Why are there no brown lasers?

    Hi guys, it's been a while. So, I've been thinking about this very interesting question. Something that intrigues me a lot is the fact that red light and green light blended make yellow light, but the color red and the color green blended make...BROWN! So, is it possible to make a brown laser...

    Dichro Confusion?

    Hi guys! I was thinking about making a monster red laser, and 'monster' means combining lots and lots of diodes (in my imagination anyways ;) ), so I was thinking whether I could dichro two different hues of red into one beam of medium red. Suddenly I realized there was such a thing as infrared...

    What is the most powerful laser of each color?

    Hi guys! Long time no see. So researchin' around, I found out that someone had made a 7.3 W Blu and that is just awesome. It appears to me that 2W seems the threshold for green, but I don't really know about the other colors. Red? Yellow? Purple? Infrared? And what might be the highest possible...

    W0w this laser is really cheap.

    Well, I was just browsing through the internet and chanced upon the laser pointer: 5000mW Blue Laser Pointer (445nm) | Buy Blue, Red, Violet, Green Laser Pointer :drool: WOW! If that is really 5 W than... I can almost imagine someone beam-combining this... :D

    Science Fair Project?

    Hi guys, I'm back! I've been researching a while for ideas for a science fair project i need to make, and found that you can measure the speed of light in gelatin through a laser, measure photon interference through a laser aimed at some slits, and construct a laser weigher. Is there any more...

    Moving to China?

    Hi everybody, There is a possibility that I will be moving to China in the near future. Can I take advantage of the lasers (:eg: overspec, cheap :drool:) over there? Or will it be even worse 'cause... they're Chinese lasers? :na:

    Creative things to do with hacked-out laser module?

    My 5 mW Ebay pointer just couldn't light up, so I gave up and tore it apart for a look. While taking out the module, I discovered that it was the fault of the button, so I had torn it all up for nothing :o. But I was determined to do something with it, so I rigged it up to two AA batteries...

    Effects of 445 nm laser on common things.(pic heavy)

    EDIT: Decided not to add that much pics. Enjoy the post! As the wavelength of 445 nm lasers are close to UV, fluorescent materials glow with an unearthly light once they are shone upon. Of course 405 violet lasers fairly brush the ultraviolet range, so if anyone could show some pics of violet...

    Mirror reflecting red only?

    Hello all, I was looking at the threads about creating cheap yellow lasers by mixing the colors red and green together. Is it possible to get a type of mirror that can allow the same color (i.e. red) to pass through/reflect? Cause if that is possible, then I could make a really powerful laser...

    Wikipedia Page on Wicked Lasers Company

    Hi everyone, I have a Wikipedia account, and one day I was browsing through it when I searched and realized that Wikipedia does not have a page on Wicked Lasers! I will do plenty of research (LPF search button is my sword :D) and will gather lots of information. But as I am a noobie, I will need...

    6W laser build?

    How do people like styropyro on his Youtube channel build such a monster? I'm just curious, not really intending to build it. This thread might become a real tutorial if anyone's willing. :thanks:

    Advice on 200 mW DX module?

    This seems unbelievable. Since I am still a noobie, I would like comments on this. The reviews are all excellent and it is lots cheaper than many of the other green 200 mW I've seen. And yes, as one of the user on this forum says in his signature, "I am sick of spoon-feeding noobs who don't care...

    1W blue laser brightness problem

    Hi all I recently have made a 1W blue laser in a c6 cree build with a m140 module from DTR. I got the one which incidentally does not say 1W in the website. Now I'm wondering whether my laser is really that bright as a real 1W blue laser because I have seen other sites on LPF saying it is about...
