I pulled this combining cube out of a old HD TV


pulled the extras from it


Effect when shining cree Q5 through it


The rest is a copy and paste from my thread in optics but I figured it was just a relevant here

I very roughly mocked up a combiner using upside down saucers, drink coasters, and scrap paper adjusting shims

Turned out pretty good though in my opinion!

You can see the reflection of other beams on the tips of the lasers but it seemed to work pretty well even so.


40-60mW 405nm through smoky bottle


250mW 660nm


30mW 532nm


660nm + 532nm





405nm + 532nm - sort of looks like 445nm




405nm + 660nm


AND the mythical WHITE :drool:




Now I have to admit that the camera seems to help blend the colors quite a bit. In real life up close you can see multiple colors in the beam but messing around with correct focusing etc should remedy this. :beer:

Fun for a spur of the moment little project!

Looking great for a salvage build.
You will probably have problems getting everything "just right" with the setup you are using but that sure is a pretty white beam ^_^

Im planning to use a low power (relative to their potential) 445nm, 300mW 660nm, and 100mW 532nm. Ill keep this thread updated as things come together.

I also my just use dicros instead of the cube. Anyone want to comment on this? Is this a better way to go?
