I always thought it was just another name for a cd drive tray, perhaps a different named used when the optics were part of the tray (like in laptop drives). Guess I were wrong!

Anyhow, oic0 = Oh, I, see, zero (nothing). Screen name ive had on and off for 10 years or more, seemed appropriate for a laser forum though, just in case I screw up and blind myself, my screen name will atleast be ironic :wave:
Could be. I might have over analyzed the acronym:D
I did find that description, as well as others, for SLED.
So I'm still not sure what it actually stands for:thinking::anyone:

Thank you so much for your list! sometimes Acronyms will be useful ,but I don't think so many Acronyms will be helpful for communication. Wish all the friends here consider more of other people. It's really boring to come across such confussing words

This topic is very useful! I think I'm gonna return here several times...
I cannot find many abbreviations in my portable Britannica electronic dictionary and probably never will... ;)

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.

Very helpful...+1 on the rep. Is there also a simple terminology thread on the forum or no? Terms like "pill" and other nomenclature designations threw me a bit as I was reading some of the threads. I eventually figured them out but it would be nice to have an explanation thread somewhere along the same lines as this one.

Thanks for all the kind words on my thread, I remember when I started working on lasers and found this great forum I thought I needed to add something useful. Glad this has helped.
