    Want to upgrade my 3W laser

    About 5 years ago, my daughter and I built a custom 3W 405nm DTR diode laser. It's a simple setup, with a copper heatsink/diode holder of around 100 grams. It's a simple 18650 flashlight conversion. I'm using it at work, and frankly, with the new diodes out, and me being so busy, I'd really...

    Lasers in Science

    We should make this an ongoing thread with links to peer reviewed journals, multimedia, etc.. Anyway, on to today's find: How about a diamond, being suspended in a vacuum with a beautiful high-powered laser? I'm guessing a high-output 532nm. I'll link to an article or this experiment, if I...

    Hello, all. I'd like to make my apologies for not being active lately. I was able to participate often while I had a wonderful assistant, combined with a slow period at work. I had it made. I had my bench PSU, heatsinked Ophir, great DMM, diode test/punishment heatsink, tripods, clamps, orders...

    The Death of the Mighty Steed

    So, I was picking up my daughter at the airport. I was in my little Toyota Solara, which has been a trusty used car we got from a friend. She's got ~168K miles on her. We've hardly had to do anything to it in the 2+ years we've had her. Well, the little Toyota, named Stella, suffered a fatal...

    So Busy a Rookie Mistake Got Me

    So, I've been very busy at work in the last two weeks, with my assistant out due to a torn hamstring. Now, usually, I have the time to handle the sales and repair of the vacuums, and get plenty of time to work on lasers. Of course, as soon as my assistant is out, we suddenly get bum-rushed with...

    New Case, Big Competition For Pelican!

    Hi, all! It was time for me to upgrade my carrying case. My old one wasn't cutting it anymore. I don't have a lab at home (no space), and I don't trust leaving my expensive equipment around my shop (meth heads). So, I needed a case that was big enough for not only my lasers, but the more...

    Veteran Status Revoked

    Well, I received word that my veteran status has been revoked. It's a very disappointing turn of events. I do understand the reasoning (to be fair and strict to the rules), but it still stings. So, for all the vets that were bothered that I was allowed to be a vet, you need not worry anymore...
