Will these 445nm diodes bring down the price on 473nm equipment?
Exactly! ^^I completely agree with Rkcstr, 473nm is a completely different color for one so you cannot simply replace it with 445nm. The process of making 473nm is very complex and requires a lot of work. The beam properties are better as well. That is the equal of asking if 671nm laser prices are going to come down in price now that 650nm dvd burning diodes are so cheap.
I've seen the the movie in your signiture-Zeitgeist the addendum.haha you are right! it was with every color I first saw.. red in the movies "predator" and "terminator", green in "alien vs predator" (..which sheds some interesting light on my childhood i guess!). now i just fire up my violet one from time to time to play around with fluorescence.. man, those colors eat up fast!
..all excited about 445nm, I will NEVER lose interest in this one, for sure! *smiles*
(5mw 635nm pointer? 10mw 589nm pointer? silly, not? ..must have them all!)
