I don't want any deflection, reflection, refraction.
What diachi says---you can't avoid all properties of optics and still use optics LOLWell then it won't work, seeing as lenses work by refracting light. Not to mention all optics will reflect some of the light entering them...
No. You can not combine the 4 laser beams. Lasers only work that way in imagination/an imaginary world. See: http://laserpointerforums.com/f51/reference-guide-how-combine-lasers-77449.htmlCan a basic glass magnifying glass combine 4 laser to one point safely? I don't want any deflection, reflection,refraction.
And tips on getting the best lense of high quality grade of glass magnifying ?
The best you can do is focus all 4 individually onto a single focal point and that is the only point where there will be combined output power power at a single point.
She did say "combine", and I didn't know if she meant beams or dots--could be either--so answered about combining beams and about focusing 4 individual dots on a single focal point.I thought that's what OP was asking about...?
I agree OP - if you want to combine them into a single beam that's not the way to go about it.
You can focus them all to roughly the same spot with a lens, but even that isn't ideal. You'd get better results by combining and then focusing.
She could use 2 PBS to reduce to 2 beams then a single PBS cube t get one beam and then focus that onto a single focal point.
Oops you are 100% right---not thinking-brain fog -- am in the middle of 3 other things at the same time. lolNo she couldn't, that isn't how PBS cubes work, the last PBS would split the two beams you've already combined back into individual beams and you'd be exactly where you started before the last PBS cube.
No worries, I know how it goes!Oops you are 100% right---not thinking-brain fog -- am in the middle of 3 other things at the same time. lol
Agreed!Best if she can say what it is she wants to accomplish. Whatever it is it is probably not as easily done in the real world as in imagination.
Hi all thanks you for ur quick to help
I want to achieve what Diachi linked me with styropyros 200W laser principle. Not 200W's though..
Will a normal household magnifying glass work? Or do I need something offline abit more purer grade. Thanks
