Trying to find the divergence of this device now.

Edit: Divergence found on one web site to be 1.8 degrees, over 30 mRad. 1 degree about 17.45 mRad.

Thanks, based on 17.45 mRad per degree 31.45 mRad. Our laser pointers are often 1.5 to 3.6 mRad, up to about 11 mRad for the NUBM44 laser diode when collimated with a ~6 mm diameter lens.

Yes, it’s a flashlight, but a very tight beam for such.
We know this device uses a led phosphore (P) excited by a blue or violet laser to produce white light. I wonder what result could be produced by exciting such a phosphore with a collimated beam expander (BE)
A schematic. LASER ---(BE)(P)=====
Ebay sells phosphore sheets.

My understanding from something Cyparagon, (or maybe it was Paul) posted a couple of years or more ago is the florescence is not at all coherent, so focusing a beam on the material whether collimated, or uncollimated cannot produce anything different.

Actually the Acebeam' s beam is collimated, though poorly. I still wonder what result would be produced. Would it create a flood effect or a semi narrow beam?

Donno, I know they collimate the florescence, would be interesting to see if, or what difference it might make or not, I expect little to nil.

The larger W30 version is the unit that BobMc posted a thread and video on a few days ago.
As a long throwing tight beamed flashlight, this W30 is very impressive IMO; I don't think that it's intended to be a laser competitor, heck if the divergance was too good, it would be useless as a flashlight.

@ ACEBEAM, nice photo of these along side of some lasers. :)

The title of this thread kept me away as it is NOT a white laser! As for long throwing flashlights, I suppose it could be useful there, but they shouldn't claim it as a laser.

Technically they aren't wrong. They say, "white laser light". Both units and similar cars headlights use a laser as the source.

Well, it has a laser inside, but I agree, a bit misleading, however, closer to a laser at 31 mRad than any hand held flashlight I know about.

That's why I said "technically".
Led filament light bulbs work from the same principle. I took one apart and discovered the phosphor is a silicone sleeve covering the diodes.

Technically, they are. I did several experiments a few years ago with fluorescent materials excited by a laser and measured the output with my spectrometer. The outputs were FAR from coherent light and had a basic output similar to LEDs, but much wider.
