I am thinking to use this thermal pad to stick the driver to the heatsink

The Diode still works after de-can, but this one is zombie from Dave.

These were already cropped using the feature in the camera.
I put the poor thing on the Lathe and cut out the can using parting blade:eg:
Thorlabs sell a tool to de-can diode as well.
I got the replacement lens from Aixiz the lens on the right should be correct, the coating is not as golden comparing to the coating on the 405-G-1 lens.
It still has a mix of light blue and light golden color.
Note the lens nut is golden color as well.

Is it possible to achive this?
Beam divergence, full angle (mrad)<1. 0
Expected lifetime (hours)10000
Output power (mW)>1000
I propose we start a Drivers Section.
Since drivers is one of the most important elements for us DIYers next to Diodes.
Would it be a good idea to have a centralized section for this topic.
Let the polling begin.:pop:
