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.
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.
Can a 445 diode be made to produce 2 watts pulsed for 2-3 seconds safely without burning up?
Here are a few examples of my Spartan 447nm 1Watt Laser and my new Wicked Lasers Photonic Disrupter Pro 532nm 100mW Laser.
