Yeah its all good! :D
The goal here is to have as much information as possible and to make it as accurate as possible.

Only thing is that this thread will eventually get buried as new threads are made :/
Maybe I"ll bump it everyday to keep it up for new people to see....
Haha, just be careful to not bump it up with random info.

For example:

Bump :)

But...but...but SKeeZ....mine has colored text....and...and...pictures!
Also mine isn't a list of every single wavelength but of the ones you can actually get easily (though sometimes expensively) as pointers/modules.

but but Blarg, mine is from a scholarly source. and thus i think you should adapt yours to match that of the scholarly source. maybe not include every exotic wavelength. its mostly your information on IR that is really bugging me.

I'll give a complete list of wavelength: 1nm-3000nm fancy enough? Lol seriously I'm sure there is ALOT more than what listed here. One of those visibility charts is more useful to me personally. Try not to post things I'm sure have been posted billions of times. Besides that looks decent.

To be fair IR is harder since we don't see into that spectrum we don't really have names for all them.

Also LaserBTB has some interesting Wavelengths that I haven't seen anywhere else.

Has this been done before? I looked way down the forum and couldn't find anything...

I don't think so...

I haven't seen it.

It had been done. Y'all's missed two months. I saw a couple charts along the way. A chart has EVERYTHING in it. More visual as well.

Umm i dont think so haha. A wavelength of 16004nm is VERY far outside of light used in lasers.
I know there is one though! :wtf:

Let me try and find it....

Well, the highest wavelength color we see is red... Imagine how many other colours there could be if we could "simply" see them. But because we cannot imagine colours that we've never seen we'll never know.
EDIT: DAMN, that has got me thinking lol!

I imagine the world would be alot harder if we could see everything haha :)

Imagine everytime you use a remote control, seeing a red beam shoot out onto your tv :(
