    Anyone familiar with these "picosecond laser pens" ?

    Hello all, Lately on Ebay and Wish I've been getting suggested a lot of these "picosecond laser pens" that are supposedly for tattoo removal, they all seem to be made by this company "Neatcell". I've tried looking up how they work but mostly all I can find are reviews by people swearing they...

    taking apart an old WL Fusion?

    Hello, I was digging through my box of lasers and I found an old Wicked Lasers Fusion that I bought off this forum years ago. Sadly when I put fresh batteries in it it doesn't appear to work anymore. I suspect the battery contact inside the laser are corroded but I can't reach anything down far...

    cutting clear acrylic with a 445 diode?

    So using a Co2 cutter at work really has me wanting a laser cutter of my own, but due to monetary and space constraints I think a Co2 cutter is out of the question for the time being. So the next obvious choice would be a nice diode laser, probably a 445nm since those are the most powerful...

    What I've been up to in my absence

    Thought I'd make a thread showing what I've been doing in my year+ absence from LPF. So about a year and a half ago I finished a 2 year college program for Digital Media, and through the college I was given the opportunity to become an intern at the local military base, and so for the past...

    I'm back and I brought a Co2 Laser with me

    Hello! Been a long while since I've been on here. Basically a year and a half ago I got a new job as an intern photographer for the Canadian Military and I haven't had that much free time, and I'll admit my passion for lasers dimmed a bit, which is a shame really considering I have more income...

    Just for fun, Lasers in the lowest possible quality :D

    Hello all, been a long while since I've been here, thought I'd come back with something a bit on the niche and interesting side of things. Years ago I got my hands on a GameBoy Camera, and just the other day I found a nice tutorial on how to get the images off of the GameBoy Camera using an...

    Lasers in 360

    So my college let me borrow a 360 degree camera over March break. Thought I would see what I could do with some lasers in a full 360 environment. The photos aren't terribly good quality, but I'm sharing them anyway just to see what people think and maybe get some ideas going. This is my first...

    My new 405 + Fluorescent Calcite

    Just a couple beamshots of my new 405 I assembled today. And some fluorescent calcite glowing under a ton of UV. Forgot how much it blooms around the laser aperture. The massive bloom around the end of the beam is because it started vaporizing the plastic garbage can I used as a beamstop...

    Round 2: Success

    I got my 405 module from DTR in the mail today, and successfully got it installed in a 501b. Big thanks to Alaskan for loaning me a diode assembly and to DTR for the ease of getting all the arrangements squared away. This time around insted of soldering the diode module wires to the wires from...

    Some help with fixing my power meter

    So ages ago the sensor connection port on my Radiant X4 LPM broke, and today I finally got a replacement connector in the mail and got it all fixed up. Sadly though, when I went to retrieve the sensor, I discovered this: The sensor is completely ruined. Not sure how this happened, might have...

    I quit

    Finally got my 505 diode module, had it soldered into my 501B host, went to put it together and a wire snagged and ripped the diode off the driver and snapped the pins off the diode. So there goes 95$ and the last singular care I have for this hobby. I'm about ready to take every single laser...

    Uniphase Novette HeNe User Manual

    I was organizing my books and came across the user manual for my Uniphase Novette 1500 HeNe laser. I thought some folks here might find it interesting, so I scanned it into my PC and made it into a PDF. Not sure if I can embed a PDF into a post, so heres a dropbox link where you can...

    Hosts

    Been kicking around the idea of building some new lasers out of DTR modules, however I haven't done it in years and I have no idea who makes and/or sells hosts anymore. I've looked around the forum but all the threads I can find haven't had replies in a long time. Not looking to build anything...

    A question for those knowledgeable about radioactivity

    So I came up with an idea, but I'm not entirely sure it would actually work, and I can't seem to find much information about it on Google. Basically I've seen a couple videos pop up over the last year where people make crude (but functional) "batteries" by sandwiching a bunch of those...

    Anyone know anything about Super 8 cameras?

    Hello! I picked up a nice Bell & Howell Microstar Z Super 8 camera from a thrift shop, and I've got it mostly figured out, except for on thing: Theres this clear window underneath the main lens of the camera, and I have no idea what its for. Its kind of hard to see in the photo, but behind...

    My dog chases lasers.

    I found out by accident that my golden retriever likes chasing laser dots. And by accident I mean I was shining a laser down my hallway and she came running after the dot like a demented fluffy torpedo. I've found its a good way to let her blow off some steam on days its too hot for a walk, and...

    Some Brucemir inspired beam bounces

    Got some cheap mirrors from the dollarstore, decided to try out a few beam bounces. Also did some on 200 ISO film. Will have to wait for those to get developed.

    The 35mm Laser Gallery

    So, after several weeks of waiting, I was finally able to get my color film developed. One of my college instructors was kind enough to let me use the school's darkroom and teach me how to do the C-41 development process. And for the most part, I was able to develop all my film without issue. I...

    Tips for shooting lasers on film?

    Hello! I reccently bought myself a film SLR camera, and I wanted to try out some laser photography using film instead of digital. I don't know if anyone here has tried doing laser photos with film, but if anyone has and has some helpful pointers that would be great. I'll give a rundown of what...

    Some non-laser photography I've done.

    Not entirely sure non-laser photos can go here. If not, I'm sorry. I thought I would share some non-laser photographs I've done over the past month for college. Uranium glass cup under UV: Full moon on a cloudy night: Fluorescent crystal under UV: A closeup of my bearded dragon: A...
