Looks like a little black hole forming there. I think I see the gamma ray jet coming out of it.
well we got xray laser now, but still waiting on gamma ray lasers

This is a 400mw 405nm I got from o-like years ago, in the 1st pic you can see inside, my ac is on and there is some humidity today, also the diode is usually not exposed, it's sealed by O-rings on the front half with the lens that I took off to make the pic.

The 2nd pic is after I turned it on for a half a second, it was awash and overdriven, but notice how the unseen moisture on the can window was heated away.





I replaced the end with the lens and it works just fine, but I see why protecting the higher power diode windows would be more important.

@Redcowboy, that would be great if you can shoot the emitter while being powered on.
I'm having difficulties trying to shoot those small closed can diode,

especially when trying to shoot 808nm closed can diode while the emitter is being powered on @ threshold current.
The IR really disturbs the camera sensor.

Have you tried putting laser glasses between the camera to reduce the amount of IR when at near threshold? Maybe something with a low OD would attenuate enough while being clear enough to see the emitter?

AHA! you're right!

i'll try it, maybe using IR filter is even better
I'm sure some of IR still got transmitted through :beer:
