BDR-203 - 8X diode from a Blu-Ray burner
GGW-H20L - 6X diode from a Blu-Ray burner
SF-AW210 - 6x diode from a Blu-Ray burner?
GBW-H10N - 4X diode from a Blu-Ray burner?
LPC - 22X diode from a DVD burner
PHR - Blu-Ray diode from a BRD 360 add-on
CW - Continuous Wave
LOC - Long Open Can
LCC - Long Closed Can

J/K Just kidding
GTFO Get the F out
Glenn tried to explain that to me and for me it was easier to just say 6x or 4x, still don't understand!

Anyways what about mA milliamp I think, another member will get it

Well there is 2 types of 6X. Opinions differ on which is the best but IMO...wait gotta add that...IMO the GGW is a better diode. But in the end its all a crap shoot cause diodes differ too.

IMO - In my opinion
IMHO - In my humble opinion.

Somebody told me IMHO is in my honest opinion, that kind of makes more sense.

No glenn was confusing me with the PHR stuff, he said I'll learn but I doubt it lol

Cant see the new revision cause the letters look black. Id copy the whole rev2 and paste it over the original post so its up top. Then delete the bottom rev2 post. But keep it all the same color. IMO

Are you using the Dark Shadow style page, I use the default due to this very reason, you cant see black colors very well. However I will check it out and try to make it work.

How about YAG (yttrium aluminium garnet) and YVO4 (Yttrium orthovanadate). And nanometer is nm not nM and also begins with the letter N not M. :)


The HTML filter from YaBB probably replaced double quotes (") with &quot and after switching to vBulletin, the forum software replaced the ampersand(&) with &amp so &quot became &ampquot and is now displayed as "&quot" instead of the double quote symbol (") but I think only older posts are affected.

Add this :
SCC = short close can
SOC = short open can

you could also add

TO-3 = laser diode package


Oh ya daguin, try to find an accronym to my name :evil:

And concerning the argon laser, I'll give you my final decision in 3 days.
