Hi everybody,

I want a green line laser, it has to be clearly visible with a camera, so I was thinking 50mW.

I'd like to DIY one, but I have a few questions on that.
Can you just glue/mount a line grating lens (like this one: Line lens 60 degree for AixiZ 12X30mm laser modules - eBay (item 380145800291 end time Sep-27-10 17:24:38 PDT) ) in front of a laser module like this one : 50mW 532nm 3.0-3.7V /Laser Diode Module/Green Laser - eBay (item 260541750065 end time Sep-18-10 20:29:51 PDT) ?

And does anyone know of a store where I can find line generator lenses for 532nm lasers?

Thanks

You had it right.
AixiZ
This will work for any color laser, and can fit on the green module you linked to (maybe a little modification is needed).

That would be great!
I'm not scared of a little modification.

Are you sure those kind of lenses work for all wavelengths?

I'd like to know if you, or anyone else, is/are sure that line lenses like these:


will work for different wavelenghts?
Because some sellers claim they're for 655nm, and some don't list any wavelength at all.
But ofcourse the sellers that do list a wavelength might not know wether or not they work for different colors...

I can confirm the common line lenses work on the 3 main wavelength's.

Thanks for the effort ped!
Is the distortion on the image of the green line caused by the camera? Or is it not a clear line in real life?

Nope the beam was fine, my camera (like human eyes) is very sensitive to bright green light.

Great,
Thanks for your effort, I've added to your rep power ;)

It may be surprising but it was pretty dificult to find this info on the web. Nowhere to be found!
