When I look directly at the pic I would say 532nm, but when I´m staring on another item near my notebook, without focusing your laser-pic, I notice 445nm much more.
Except the sensitivity and colour balance of a CCD in a digital camera is not necessarily that of an eye. so comparing digital photos for the purpose of comparison to eye sensitivity is not accurate.Awesome, thanks ken! That is actually pretty close in terms of brightness. That is good to hear. I am attempting to build a 50-75mW 445 in a pen, and I was hoping it would still be pretty bright. Based on this, a 75mW 445 may be equivalent to a 40-50mW green. And a 50mW would be similar to a 30mW green. Which is actually still quite bright!
In general*, the 445nm emits a "bar-shaped" beam. Thus taken at different angles, the 445nm beam is likely to appear differently (different thicknesses)....interesting how much thicker the 445 beam appears to be compared to the green.
Probably yes because DTR's Frankenstein is running at 2W CW and he can run it for a pretty long time without it even getting too warm.Can a 445 diode be made to produce 2 watts pulsed for 2-3 seconds safely without burning up?
Does the 445 look violet to human eye or just camera?
Here are a few examples of my Spartan 447nm 1Watt Laser and my new Wicked Lasers Photonic Disrupter Pro 532nm 100mW Laser.
