OPEN OFFER TO FORUM MEMBERS!

Laserglow recently completed a small production run of 808nm handheld lasers for a special customer, and we have one left over which was not purchased. This laser is physically identical to our Orion-200 and has very similar beam specs (it is a diode laser, not DPSS). The "small" difference is that this particular laser is tested to produce a CONTINUOUS 1.01W of output. The output graph, over a 10 minute period, shows a perfectly straight line at 1.01W and I have personally checked and validated the output power. This laser is really, really powerful.

The asking price for this single unit is USD $1200, with free standard shipping and output power graph. We can also supply laser safety goggles, which are HIGHLY recommended for a >1W near-IR handheld laser.

Please contact me for more details. First come, first served because there's only one of these!

WOW, :eek: wish I had the money to buy it, but I just blew my whole laser budget a couple days ago. ::)

Man, at that sort of power would 808nm be visible as deep red? What sort of stuff can it burn, wood!?!?! :eek:

I think 1 watt of 808 would be slightly visable But watch your eyes with this !!
I don't worry too much about 10 -20 mW unfocused IR from a greenie but this is a real fire breather.

'lazerlover drools as he reads this'
god I want that laser, instead of $1200, how about we put a period in there, how about this $12.00 ;D ;D ;D

The visual appearance of this laser is similar to ~5mW of red, but when I tested it on a piece of electrical tape (with no extra lenses) it ate right through in about one second. With an external focusing lens this laser could produce a very serious amount of heat at close range. The beam is sort of rectangular, since this is a stacked diode laser like our Orion. It would be great for experimenters interested in DIY optical pumping or for anybody who wants to put "1.01W" in their signature line. ;)

Actually, I think that "1,010 mW" is probably more impressive sounding since people are used to hearing laser power rated in mW. Either way, this handheld laser means business.

Re: >1W 808nm Handheld from Laserglow (ONLY 1 UNIT

almost had me until the rectangular beam bit.. Is the diode mode corrected at all ,is it colliminated?

Dare I ask just how bad the divergance is ?( 808 should be better than the 1064 dpss unit I use now ..)

You can buy it and give it to me....I will give it a loving home ;D I'll even send you a rare red pointer that has AWESOME psuedo-gold plated metal-like plastic caps with dirty pictures in them. ;D Yes, I know I offer WAY too much....but hey- what are friends for, eh ?

yeah basically this is your portable blinding device right here. Co2 won't go through glass, but this sure will.

It needs a good home in a lab. it's not a toy ( even though I can think of all kinds of fun i could do with it )

I found some pics of a orion on CPF ( CPF?t=132797 ) and some beam shots.. that dot looks weird, not what I was expecting.

FYI: This unit is now SOLD. If anybody still wants one with similar specs we can do a custom build. Just keep in mind that it may take several weeks to complete. Thanks for your interest, everyone.
