Got this 445nm Diode from Dave. Enjoy.
The Diode still works after de-can, but this one is zombie from Dave.Wow, nice pics! It does still work right?
Olympus Stylus 1010 on small tripod.:yh:Great macros! What did you use to take them with?
My weapon of choice is my Canon 50D + EF-S 60 Macro
These were already cropped using the feature in the camera.wow. -- You wouldn't happen to have the full resolution or some 1:1 crops around would you? (Or are these already...) -- would be really interesting to see a comparison between this 445 and say a 12x 405.
I put the poor thing on the Lathe and cut out the can using parting blade:eg:Superb photos, its wild to think ~1W of laser light can come out of such a small device.
Just out of curiosity, what did you use to de-can this diode.
I de-can my diodes by putting the diode in reverse in the module like in the OP, and then use a knife to saw all the way around the can by hand. I stop every now and then to blow away any metal dust with a small air pump, and finally when the can is removed. This is risky, I only do it if I have to. Though overall it is actually pretty easy, as long as you pay attention to what you're doing.A lathe is probably the most expensive de-caning tool ive ever heard of :crackup:
