    Ran into this host.

    Now let me start by saying that I'm not sure if this would be a good host for a laser or not. I'm thinking it might be a bit too expensive to make a good host.. but I thought I would share anyway, see what you guys think: Apollo AP-1 Tactical Flashlight by Cybernetic Research Labs ? Kickstarter

    New improved laser glove video

    I haven't been around here for a while.. but I thought some of you guys might be interested in how my laser glove project is progressing. I finally got a decent camera and put together some footage that goes over the laser gloves. Here is a video: For more info, visit my site: Trinary Products.

    Splitting a fiber coupling

    Would it be possible to take one laser at about 30mw and split it evenly into 5 fiber coupling lines? Has anyone here tried to do this?

    635nm vs 650nm

    So here is the scenario: I can get a 650nm diode for much less than a 635nm. Even at double the power the 650 is still 40% cheaper than the 635. So I'm wondering if there's much difference. Which one would you go with?

    Laser gloves now for sale

    Some of you probably recall my laser glove project that I started a few months ago. Well I finally have a set of green laser gloves that is good enough to sell, and I've listed them on etsy! Take a look. BTW, for anyone reading this thread later: this was originally a link to my etsy listing...

    Chinese new year

    Quote from supplier: I particularly like the note of joviality in the message. I have never seen Carrie laugh before. This Chinese new year must be quite entertaining. Practically anyone who orders lasers can expect extra delays this time of year. haha :san:

    Biological reasons for color perception

    I'm trying to figure out why our eyes work the way they do in respect to color. What mechanism makes us see green so brightly? I have heard quite a few smart people with something to say about it, but a lot of what I have heard is contradictory. I was looking at this site recently, which has...

    Fiber coupled laser

    I am looking at a fiber coupled laser module and I'm having a really hard time finding detailed information that I can understand on just what a fiber coupled laser is. The impression I am getting is that the diode is on one side of a fiber optic cable and the optics are on the other side. I am...

    A UV filter

    Hello everyone. My Chinese supplier has just asked me if I wanted to add a UV filter to my laser in order to make them less likely to fail. I've tried to think of a reason, but try as I might I can't see how a UV filter would help. So my question is this: Can UV light damage a laser diode? Is...

    470nm diode

    I work with smaller diodes at lower power. My Chinese supplier has just told me that he has just gotten the technology to make me a 470nm at 10mw that is just larger than a AA battery. It's a bit spendy at the moment, but i'm hoping the price will drop soon. I am wondering if anyone knows what...

    My laser device

    Hi, not sure where to post this, but I wanted to share my new toy with you guys :) 5 x 5mw green diodes! Edit to add the video below to the first post: What do you guys think?

    Hello everyone

    Hi, new to this forum. I've been messing around with cheap commercial lasers for a while now and it has occurred to me that it would be really nice to be able to verify what frequency a laser is actually outputting at. For instance, I have a cheap red laser pointer here and I would like to...
