I just recently bought 2 lpc826 diode and placed them in a housing and when I tried hooking it up to my lm317 driver set at 500+ ma , and it just produces this small red dot and I don't think it's supposed to be this weak.would be great if anyone could help.
im new to buliding lasers and im planning to build my first one.im planning to build a blue laser pen.
Please tell me if these parts will work together.

Osram 80mW 450nm Blue Laser Diode (TO56 5.6mm) PLT5 450B - OdicForce
Laser boost driver:
