    Banned Members Returning.

    Why do banned members return and make damn sure we know it's them? If you are banned, don't do that, you will just get banned again. But more than that, if you do come back under cloak, just don't do what caused the banning to begin with again. Aren't these suggestions just common sense? I mean...

    Anyone have info on the Lumenis Novus Spectra?

    Has anyone seen one of these for themselves, or know of anyone who was able to get one of them running? It is either a Lumenis Novus Spectra, or a HGM Elite Ophthalmic 532 nm green 808 nm bar pumped YAG-KTP DPSS laser, but not sure which one of the two. Wondering what the max power out they can...

    Ebay seller newgazer and techhood - same seller, different accounts.

    Of all of the China sellers on ebay, techhood is certainly one of the best of the bunch, and appears to be honest, but you never know who is who on ebay, so many laser parts sellers are operating under different accounts there.

    CLOSED: Osram PL 530 Modules: 808 nm to 530 nm OPSL Technology - Narrow .3 nm Linewidth (new, old stock)

    Who is in for a group buy of PL530 low power ~50 mw green output laser modules? The more people we can get, the lower the price I can offer. I've been paying $10 dollars each in the past, I can get that price down to 7.50, or less, depending upon how many I order. Once we get enough people, I...

    BlackBuck 6 POT!

    I like the Black Buck 6, but the pot used on this little board is far, far too small and fragile, it's a surface mount with tiny little minute spots of solder holding it on the board which is far too soft, come off with a slight touch. This is the second one that has happened to me with. I...

    Anyone ever seen a laser diode like this?

    I've seen TO-3 mounted laser diodes (sometimes a c-mount inside them) but I've never seen one quite like this. I don't know if this is purely a pulse LD, or a CW LD being pulsed or what wavelength, but this is part of a Instro laser range finder rated for 5 kilometers.

    Laser rangefinder viewed through an IR digital camera

    Months ago I asked if anyone here had a small 905 nm laser rangefinder they could try to record the IR pulse laser output from using a cell phone, no one had a rangefinder to try with. After returning from working in Iraq, I finally purchased a used rangefinder and tried to do so using my...

    What kind of rod is it?
