I am researching laser projector with phosphor wheels. They usually come with diode arrays. I know some members here have taken some apart to learn about them, or to harvest the diodes.
I need some advice on what type of optics they use to focus the array onto the phosphor wheel.
I am interested to know what are the important properties of a good laser diode driver.
Are DC step up/down CC/CV power supplies sufficient?
Is ramping up important? How would I incorporate ramping into a standard DC supply?
I hear alot about frequency but what does that actually mean...
I have been looking around regarding the laser power tolerance of AR coated lens and mirrors.
However, I don't know how to do the math to really find out. There are a bunch of numbers thrown around but nothing I can actually use. They do have some info for UV-fused silica, but that base material...
