Well, I finally got my 40mW 635nm diode up and running that I purchased on eBay a while back. I had Ehgemus make a nice host for me to keep this diode cool. Here's a picture below.



Since this diode was not meant to be a burner (IMO), I felt there was no need for focusing. Therefor, I had the lens housing inside of the build, with a cover over it. See below.



And as you can see, I chose the white powder coating to give this laser more uniqueness :)

I'm driving this thing at 100mA with an Aixiz driver and I'm using an Aixiz lens optimized for red lens. As far as output goes, it seems to vary for some odd reason. Yesterday when I metered it with my LPM, it was 39-40mW. Today, it's only hitting 30mW. You can clearly see a difference between this diode and what we're all used to seeing with our standard red builds.



All in all, I'm impressed with this build. The host is flawless (as always) and the color is indeed unique. I may attempt to obtain a more powerful 635nm sometime down the road, but for now this will suffice :)

Oh, and thanks again to everyone that answered my endless questions regarding this diode in the other thread. And especially thanks to Ehgemus & DTR for assisting me with this build. You guys rule :D

Glad it all worked out.;) As for the output check and see if it goes back up on a full battery.:thinking:

The white powder coat is slick. I ordered one in a different size myself.:D

Godly/heavenly/something to drool over, they all can be related to Ehgemus' builds although I would'nt drool on mine :p

Nice 635, the white powdercoat is awesome!

Awesome Chris, hope you can figure out what causes the stability probelm.

This host remebers me of the Kryton Smooth Pearl

Well done. +rep 4sure :beer:

If you want to squeeze a few more mW out of it, you should try one of my red AR coated acrylics. They actually do better than the aixiz glass.

I think the stability problem is just that this particular diode is extremely finicky. Sometimes it'll hit like 40mw, other times 35mw. It seems when I first power it up it's a bit higher powered and after it's run for a couple of minutes, the power drops a bit. Either way, I still love this thing.
