I received the pen chrome hosts today from Will. Everything I ordered arrived. It was stuck for 7 days at customs but was finally released.
Here are some pictures. Thanks everyone for the help.
Now I just need a warning decal sticker and this build will be complete.
Edit: Not sure how to...
Does anyone know a good place to buy laser warning decal stickers?
Doesn't look like stickers from https://laserpointerforums.com/f39/holographic-laser-warning-decals-69478.html are available anymore.
Does anyone know this company?
Creative Technology Lasers - Your source for diode lasers and laser modules at green, red and other wavelengths.
I ordered a couple of hosts from them and paid but they have stopped responding for two weeks already. Not sure what's going on.
Thanks for the suggestions.
I have considered the Micro FlexDrive link here however, on the manual it says the max voltage is 5.5V which is too low for this diode. Can it boost higher than advertised?
As for linear drivers if I use Li - Ions fully charged they're around 4V and 2 of them is 8V...
I'm currently in search of a driver for the new 495nm Sharp diode.
I've seen some people use the nano driver from DTR set to 275mA. link here
However, to my knowledge it is out of stock right now. Also, I would like to run this diode at a current between 150-200mA to reduce heat...
I've always enjoyed your videos and this one is also very interesting.
I just recently watched your video from 2 years ago about building 532nm DPSS lasers. Did you have any success Raman shifting the 1064nm line to get yellow and orange?
